In one programme the very old was a Bach orchestral suite and the very new an excerpt from an Antarctic Symphony by Australian composer – Gordon Hamilton. In between - a Beethoven Piano Trio and the glorious Grieg Piano Concerto.
The second programme - enjoyed “remotely” - featured Beethoven’s 7th Symphony, Kodaly’s “Dances of Galanta”, the finale to Scheherazde by Rimsky-Korsakov, a movement from Schumann’s 2ndSymphony and an Excerpt from “Woven Song” by Australian composer – Deborah Cheetham.
You can read all about it and listen to the music by opening up the explanatory notes for each session below - these include the relevant video links.
13 March: Beethoven '2020'; Bach, Hamilton, Grieg
27 March: Beethoven '2020'; Schumann, Cheetham, Rimsky Korsakov, Kodaly
The handouts this month will print out in two column, booklet format and require folding.
