Recorded Music Society: April Meeting
Ian stated in his opening remarks that the first half would be serious and educational – and so it proved to be, what he did not stress however was that it would also be enjoyable and so it was, the audience were totally involved. The subject was the immense Cathedral organ at Liverpool. We were regaled with visual demonstrations of the musical capabilities of this mighty instrument, which could replicate sounds from Piccolo to Bassoon, Trumpet to French horn and Violin to Bass. The second half returned to our usual mode involving Tchaikovsky “Nutcracker”, Verdi’ “Aida”, the impetuous notes of “Bolero”, Prokofiev and a variety of singing from local children’s choirs. A thoroughly enjoyable session – a hard act to follow.
Thanks Ian..and also Douglas for his technical assistance.
At the May meeting Douglas is presenting his usual eclectic mix of classical and popular music. Hope to see you there. Contact: Bob Mann 810264
