Music Appreciation Sessions Now Online

The Friday morning music appreciation sessions are now continuing on-line. They last from 10.30 to 12.00 with Peter Eccles acting as tutor. The programme for the next few weeks introduces a varied selection of works from the last 300 years.

Friday 15 May: Jean Sibelius, Symphony No 2 in D major, Opus 43, Sibelius said it was ‘a confession of the soul’

Friday 22 May: Edward Elgar, Cello concerto in E minor, Opus 85, Elgar’s last major work, contemplative and elegiac

Friday 29 May: Ludwig van Beethoven, Piano trio in F major, Opus 97 (Archduke), written for Archduke Rudolph of Austria

If you want to develop a better appreciation of classical music then you have to listen to it. Peter introduces each piece by saying something about the composer's place in the development of music, how the piece came to be written and discussing what to listen out for before we listen to it. We will share reactions to each piece.

Cost: £5 for each session. Each session is independent so why not log in and try one out? For log in details contact or 07715 643110 for more information.
