Recorded Music Society: June Meeting
The last meeting before our summer break was hosted by Bob Mann, our secretary. In Bob’s inimitable style, his programme mixed thought, wit and erudition with an eclectic choice of music and some surprises!
In fact the evening began with Haydn ‘Surprise Symphony’. Following that we heard Rubenstein ‘Melody in F’, Rossini ‘Thieving Magpie’, Glen Miller ‘Tuxedo Junction’, Tchaikovsky ‘Dance of the Flowers’, Paderewski ‘Nocturne op. 16’ (did you know that this clever chap was also prime minister of Poland in his spare time?), The programme continued with Rimsky- Korsakov ‘Scheherazade – Tale of the Young Prince and the Princess’, Dvorak ‘New World’ and the first half was rounded off with the moving ‘Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves’ from Verdi ‘Nabucco’.
After a liquid interval the programme recommenced appropriately with Glen Miller ‘In the Mood’, followed by Beethoven ‘Pastoral Symphony’, Strauss ‘Blue Danube’ and Mendelssohn ‘Midsummer Night’s Dream’. The evening finished with Bizet’s beautiful ‘Pearl Fishers’. The whole programme was a delightful and thoroughly enjoyable way to end our 2014-15 season. Thank you Bob. Please note our next meeting is 7th OCTOBER at 7.30pm.
