An Afternoon of 'Music of the Midlands'
Our next concert will be An Afternoon of 'Music of the Midlands'. Performers will include well known local pianist Michael Jones together with the highly regarded violinists Gill Pendrous and Andrew Hughes, and Jonathan Pendrous on the viola. The programme will feature a wide range of music by composers with connections to the Midlands for piano and strings, including the rich, lyrical Viola Sonata by Stourport-born composer Julius Harrison, and the warmly romantic 'Benedictus' for Violin and Organ by William Lloyd Webber, whose music has recently been popularised by his famous sons Andrew and Julian. The programme will also include more familiar composers who visited or worked in the area, including Dvorak, Holst and Elgar.
