The next meeting of the Salisbury Recorded Music Society will be held on Monday 18th February 2019 at 7.30pm in our usual venue, when we shall be very pleased to welcome Angus Menzies who will present:
Agostino Steffani (1654-1728) : seventeenth century court musician or international spy?
This Italian born musician worked as diplomat and composer at several courts across Europe at the interface of various dynasties and musical styles.
I hope you will be able to come on Monday.
The second half of the season gets underway on Monday 4th February at 7:30 as usual with a presentation on organ music. We have not had such a presentation in recent years (if at all) and yet there is a large corpus of music written for this ‘king of instruments’. The music will included works in the 17th century and some written in modern times. At least one recording was made with the Cathedral’s organ.
Hope to see you there.
