Music Appreciation Group

by Angela - 17:28 on 09 January 2017

Music group

Met  as usual on the 1st Monday of the month-so the 9th  January-

Our theme ,chosen as always by one of the group-was,"Plucked Strings"-it proved to be a very interesting and varied selection,in fact ,so good a session resulted in our continuing the same theme next time in February-

We are so fortunate in that several members have differing expertise and share their knowledge -and that is what the U3A is all about!

I have very little knowledge  and gain a lot from the meetings-

So ,this time I learnt about-

Mateo Antonio Perez Albeniz,Turlough O Carolan,Catherine Michel( Harpist).Joaquin Rodrigo,a lutenist  friend of Bach-Christan  Weyrauch,Steven Stubbs ,Maxine Eilander,Nigel North,Maire ni Chatharaigh and Chris Newman.

Some of the music we listened to was by---

Bach,Vivaldi,Monteverdi,Peter Maxwell Davies,Martin Carthy,John Williams,Benjamin Britten,Dowland,and Bolivian Baroque.

Also a pipe march.

A lively disussion and delicious home bakes ended the session.

Our next get together will be 6th February-at the Alsop residence-when our theme is continuing "Plucked Strings"

Come and join us-

Angela
