Music Appreciation
January - & Steve’s inclusion of a HurdyGurdy piece provoked a lively exchange of
E-mails, containing further information
about this instrument, once much used but
now somewhat a museum piece: thank
you all for this additional input.
Anne’s programme for February was
entitled “Mixed Emotions”. With
composers spanning six centuries, an
interesting exercise to hear how they
portrayed varying feelings in song - from
despair, anger & sadness through to calm
& tranquillity.
With Ann’s flat sanitised as far as possible
& the four participants sitting one metre
apart, we fitted in one last meeting prior to
the big Lock-down & listened to “Art in
Music”; a compilation showing how
various composers “saw/heard” paintings -
some of them well-known - in music.
We keep in touch via e-mail & phone,
exchanging details of just-heard new
recordings & items of interest from the
music world; & meanwhile researching
future programmes.
