MUSIC APPRECIATION GROUP 1

by Glenys - 17:44 on 24 October 2021

 

On Monday, 4 October, the first face-to-face meeting of Music Appreciation Group One in over
eighteen months met at Angela’s house. (During the various lockdowns, the group carried on
‘meeting’ and enjoying their monthly chosen music themes via YouTube. The social chit chat – and
coffee and cakes! – were sadly missing but, on the other side, members were able to listen to
complete symphonies, concertos, etc, rather than having to curtail the length of pieces played
because of time limitations when meeting for two hours of a morning.)
The theme for October was: Composers, or compositions, beginning with the letter ‘O’, and the
pieces chosen were as follows:
 ALBINONI:  Oboe Concerto in D minor (played by Heinz Holliger and I Musici) - 1671-1751; 
JOHANNES OCKEGHEM:  Alma Redemptoris Mater (Oxford Camerata, directed by Jeremy         
 Summerly).  c1420-1497; 
GEORGE ONSLOW:  String Quintet No 26 (The St George Quintet);                                               
 
JAMES MACMILLAN:  One for Chamber Orchestra (Britten Sinfonia);                                              
                                     
JAMES OSWALD:  Airs for the Four Seasons;
                                                                                     
LEONARD BERNSTEIN:  Overture to Candide (Frank Chacksfield and his Orchestra);
FREDERICK DELIUS:  On Hearing the First Cuckoo in Spring (BBC SO, Andrew Davis) 
The next meeting, to be held on Monday, 1 st November, will be at Glenys’s house, and the theme will
be: Composers, or compositions, beginning with the letter ‘P’.
