In Search of Fine Music 6

Jack Knudson

Mon 2 – 3:30pm

February 25  March 11, 18, 25  April 1 and 8

From the heavenly sublime to the celestial cacophonous; chill out to the lyrical Classical/Romantic period strains of Frenchman François-Adrien Boieldieufollowed by Felix Mendelssohn’s sister, Fanny, whose Romantic compositions rivalled those of her brother. Late 19th century avant-garde Erik Satie’s Parisian music continues to be warmly received, while Englishman Frederick Delius’s richly harmonised melodies were once thought to be the equal of Edward Elgar. Then, 20th century French composer Oliver Messiaen, who used bird calls and irregular rhythmic patterns in many of his works. Lastly a special session of the ‘best of the best’ treats; 15 brief YouTube classical music clips featuring outstanding soloists, that will have you lusting for more.

Min 6 – Max 20

Cost: $10
