Spring Term 2020
||Music Appreciation Class
Mondays 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm in Oakdale Community Centre
Each session is divided (by a coffee break!) into two parts. The first will be a wide-ranging selection of music, with a relevance to local events wherever possible. This section will also attempt to be responsive to the interests of participants.
The second part of each session will focus on one piece of music or topic. The subjects to be covered in the spring term, 2020, are listed opposite.
Items in the list marked * are to be performed in the locality shortly after the class, so it is possible to attend a concert and hear them live.
06Alfven: Swedish Rhapsodies 1 & 3
13Coleridge-Taylor: Hiawatha’s Wedding Feast*
20Ellington: The Nutcracker Suite*
27Walton: Symphony No 1*
03The Music of Henry Purcell
10Beethoven: Piano Concerto No 4
17Guests: Gwent Chamber Orchestra
02The Music of Charles Ives
09Bruckner: Symphony No 4
16The songs of Walter Donaldson

30Stravinsky: The Firebird
We hope it will also be possible to run a trip or two to concerts in the course of the term. Details will be discussed with the class, and costs kept at a reasonable level as far as possible.
The aim of the class is to be both enjoyable and enlightening. If you want to extend your awareness and love of music, and expand your capacity for enjoying it, you will be most welcome.
Fees: £30 for a twelve-week term.
