FORTHCOMING EVENTS

News of the Spring concerts will be added when they are arranged!

On Wednesday 8 November, we played a concert in Malone House.  The music  included a Mozart violin sonata, a sonata by the Romantic composer Vieuxtemps for viola and piano, and some lovely Rachmaninov Preludes including the famous C sharp minor one, played by Chris on the beautiful Arts Council Steinway piano.

As usual we talked about the composers, using their thoughts and opinions, and also the thoughts of their contemporaries – not always complimentary, and often very revealing.

As the concert took place shortly after Halloween, we added something spooky – ‘Danse Macabre’ by Saint Saens, arranged by the composer himself for violin and piano.
