Music Appreciation

A small group which meets every fourth Thursday at 2 30pm to listen to music and talk about it.

Music Appreciation can sound very stuffy and serious, so perhaps a change of title is due. Those of us who remember fondly the TV programme Face the Music realise that you are allowed to enjoy music and while we can’t provide a dummy keyboard, we can offer an afternoon of good listening.

Recent and forthcoming sessions include a discussion on how jazz influenced composers of “serious” music from the 1920s onwards. Composers include Gershwin, Honegger and Milhaud; the violins of Cremona, the makers, Stradivari, Amati Guarneri and the composers Corelli, Vivaldi etc.; and tracing the rise of the virtuoso and famous composers and their music for films. This includes Vaughan Williams, Britten, Walton, Richard Rodney Bennet and more.

For further information or to join the group contact Mary Knight, by clicking on Music Appreciation Group Leader.
