May 2019

Recently we have listened to “Music for peace and goodwill, from Mozart to Stravinsky”; Spanish music; and Spain-related music by non-Spanish composers. There are more treats in store, month by month.

November 2018

Recently we have been enjoying a variety of music by Brahms. We don’t plan far ahead, preferring to take it one or two meetings at a time. So far we have listened to a wide range of music from Early English pieces to Maxwell Davies.
