Past meetings Under the banner Journeys into Music – An Historical Perspective, we have traced both the sources and the development of music from medieval times up to the twentieth century, from Hildegard of Bingen to Copland, Stravinsky and Bernstein.

In April we were listening to rarely-heard gems of music including music by Franz Berwald (1796-1868), Luigi Boccherini (1743-1805), William Boyce (1711-1779), and Franz Ignaz Danzi (1763-1826).

In May the theme was the ‘giant’ of them all: Beethoven, including variations on a theme from Mozart’s opera “Don Giovanni”, to Gloria (2nd part) of Beethoven’s Mass in C, Symphony No.8 and more.
