The Musical Book Club
Thursday 1st October. 6.00 pm

After the successes of playing along to recordings last week, you asked for a) slower and b) Romantic so this week we’re going to be looking at Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 5, Movement no. 2 Andante cantabile.

The parts have Bb versions for clarinet and trumpet and we’ll be playing along to Furtwangler conducting on You Tube.

The link below will take you to where you need to download your part / score, but do get in touch if you need a hand.

We will meet on Zoom, which works on all computers, tablets and smart phones. You don’t need to have any special programmes or apps on your device to make it work, you just follow a link which will be sent to you from Lorna before the meeting.

We will be continuing to invite players to stay on the Zoom call longer to join a ‘breakout room’ to allow a chance for members to catch up with one another. Please let me know in advance if there’s particular people you’d like to catch up with and I’ll match you together! Andy is likely to use this feature throughout the session to link up similar instruments or passages of music.

Cost:
£4/5 (members/non-members)

Enrol:
Because of the difficulties of using Zoom for large groups, membership of the group will be limited to 25 people. However, unlike Cobweb events, where it is usually “Strictly first come on a desk by desk basis”, there is no limit to the numbers of any one instrument that can enrol, so if the first 25 attendees are all flautists and clarinettists, I’m sure that will lead to a very interesting, if slightly biased, discussion.
