A Mozart violin concerto, an energetically performed Vivaldi concerto played on recorder, and a Mahler symphony (No.1) to finish up comprised most of the first session. To keep up with our obligatory Beethoven work, his Egmont Overture got the programme of to a good start.
The second Session saw us start and finish in the eighteenth century (a Wagner overture to begin with and a scintillating Beethoven Choral Fantasy to conclude) with excursions into the 20th century in between – works by Bernstein, Prokofiev and Copland.
For those who weren’t part of the sessions, why not check them out via the Music Appreciation class notes below. You will be so glad you did!
