Our Music Group met at Margaret’s on Wednesday 15th February. Sadly, once again there were only three members present – Sylvia Burrows, Dorothy Maskell and Margaret. Two other members were ill, and the other three had various commitments elsewhere. Despite that, plus a fair amount of chatter during the evening, a reasonable amount of music was played.
Sylvia began the evening and her choice was the “Brahms Piano Concerto No.2” played by Alfred Brendel and accompanied by the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra.
Dorothy chose the “Easter Hymn” from “Cavelleria Rusticana” by Muscagni, sung by Kiri Te Kanawa and accompanied by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Her second choice was a “Waltz” in E Flat Major by Chopin, and a “Waltz” in A Flat Major also by Chopin played by pianist Avner Arad.
Finally, Margaret’s choice was “The Trout” by Schubert, played by the Beltane Ensemble.
