Recorded Music Society: November Meeting
The November contribution was presented by Ian. It was a dazzling mixture and a very full programme which started with the “Baroque” period, including Monteverdi, Purcell, Tallis and Gluck. We then moved swiftly into the “Classical Era” Schubert, Mendelssohn and Rossini. “The Romantic” period was represented by Tchaikovsky, Frank and Rubenstein. The solemnity was then shattered by George Formby singing “Aunty Maggie’s Remedy” which was taken advantage of at the interval. We then heard very strong vocals from Pavarotti, Bryn Terfel and Aled Jones.
The second half started with Gilbert & Sullivan followed by Pavane, Puccini, Manuel de Falla and Villa Lobos. Victoria de los Angeles sang Puccini’s “Sensa Mamma from the Opera “Suor Angelica” and in contrast the evening ended with Doris Day singing “Que Sera Sera”.
Thank you gentlemen for maintaining the very high standards that have persisted since the first programme presented by Doris and Bernard. Thanks also to the committee for guidance over the past 15 years. Contact: Bob Mann 810264
