Our Concert Maestro Roy Edwards presented his much anticipated Church Gate House Concert in November drawing on his extensive collection of CDs. He knows Moleside tastes very well and confidently introduced us not just to names that were new to several of us like Kapustin, Wieniawski and Glier but also to composers whose names we know though these particular works of theirs we might be hearing for the first time. It all made for a wonderful experience and Roy’a informed introductions were spiced with his personal recollections of where he had first heard some of the music himself for the very first time. Our thanks to Roy for reminding us all why it is we enjoy listening to music. And thanks too to David Jeffs for his technical support.
And music on the London scene is also very much on the agenda once again. Roy is now identifying live concerts that his long experience of our club tells him will appeal to our Moleside audience. His first suggestion is Thursday 24 February 2022 at Cadogan Hall.
Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
Gliere’s Harp Concerto
Tchaikowsky’s Pathetique Symphony
Roy has opened a Sign Up sheet and will be glad to hear from those wishing to express interest.
Thanks Roy – and our thanks too to Paul Tiller who has offered to organise the transport arrangements.
