Recorded Music Society: October Meeting
ARMS (AYNHO RECORDED MUSIC SOCIETY)
The new season got off to a splendid start with “Pomp and Circumstance” by Elgar and the steady heartbeat of Pachelbel’s “Canon” and Bach’s “Air on a G string”, which maestro Robert embellished with an unlikely story relating to Bach’s tendency to compose naked at his chamber window. Common sense prevailed and we were treated to a selection of operatic works including “Flower Duet” by Delius, “The Pearl Fishers” by Biset “Cavelleria Rusticana” by Mascagni and the “Toreador’s Song” by Bizet. After a convivial interval a further series of popular items which included Mozart’s “Clarinet Concerto” “Minuet” by Boccherini and a performance a la Scott Joplin of “The Entertainer” “The Organ Symphony” by Saint Saens brought a thoroughly entertaining and informative evening to a close.
A very well presented and simulating programme was enjoyed by all. Congratulations to Robert and thanks of course to Doris. Ian will be presenting the next programme.
