Recorded Music Society: April Meeting
Robert presented a most interesting and varied selection, starting with the rich full-blooded tones of Elgar’s “Pomp & Circumstance No.3” The delicacy of Delibes “Flower Duet” with Leslie Garrett singing both parts. Rossini’s “Largo al Factotum” from the Barber of Seville, a further rendition of Leslie Garrett, followed by the “Toreador’s Song” sung by Robert Merrill brought a thoroughly enjoyable vocal section to an end. Khachaturian and Gustav Holst heralded the interval.
The second half started, or perhaps startled with Fats Waller singing and playing “When somebody thinks your wonderful” and “My very good friend the Milkman”
This was followed by Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto in E minor” and the “Horn Concerto” by Mozart. Saint-Saens “Organ Symphony” brought a most enjoyable evening to a conclusion.
Very many thanks to Robert and incidentally to Doris for a super presentation.
