Recorded Music Society: May Meeting
Douglas started the last programme with the Overture ‘Magic Flute’ by Mozart. Two performances by Signals Band, was followed by Bach’s ‘St Mathews Passion’. An interesting diversion with Pan Pipes was an extraordinary prologue for the sombre tones of Sibelius ‘The Swan of Tuonela’. Haydn and Cesar Frank with ‘String Quartet’ and ‘Sonata’ preceded Albinoni’s ‘Oboe Concerto’ and the first half closed with Flanders and Swan attempting a seduction with ‘Have some Madeira m’dear’ .
The second half was a superb DVD of Brahms ‘Violin Concerto in D Major’. Thank you Douglas for a most enjoyable and imaginative presentation.
The next programme will be given by Bob. Contact: Bob Mann 810264
