Next meeting

Our last meeting before Christmas

The next meeting, the last before Christmas, will be on Monday 6 December at 7.30 when Ruth Barlow will present Classical Music in Animations and invite us to join her in an end of term scamper through some cartoons with great classical music, including considering whether Fantasia was Mickey Mouse’s finest hour and listening to Tom and Jerry playing Liszt.

As before, we ask all attending to follow the Covid safety measures we have in place including signing in and sanitising procedures on arrival, well spaced seating, wearing a mask, minimising moving around and maintaining social distancing.  From recent government announcements, it would seem that provided we follow our current practice this will fit within the latest Covid guidelines, so we plan to go ahead with the meeting on Monday, but if anyone feels uncomfortable and decides not to attend we shall understand.

After Monday we have a break until 31st January 2022 when we shall be delighted to welcome John Challenger to explore the highs and lows, the delights and difficulties of commercial recording on one of the greatest cathedral organs in the country: Salisbury’s own Father Willis Organ

We hope you will be able to come and feel comfortable on Monday 6th December

Meeting on 26 November

The next meeting of the Salisbury Recorded Music Society will be held on Monday 26th November 2018 at 7.30pm in our usual venue, when we will be very pleased to welcome Dr Roger Allen, Fellow and Tutor in Music at Oxford University who will talk on the work of Wilhelm Furtwängler.

In May 2018 Dr Allen published his book on Wilhelm Furtwängler (1886-1954) who has entered the historical memory as a renowned interpreter of the canon of Austro-German musical masterworks and was for many years principal conductor of the Berlin Philharmonic. Furtwangler also left a substantial legacy of recordings which even today are regarded by many as unique and inspirational.

I hope you will be able to come on Monday, the last before our Christmas break, will be well supported.
