Crash Course in Classical Music at Union Club, Soho


Another outing for my popular Crash Course in Classical Music, this time at the Union Club in London’s Soho. It’s a fun and informative single-evening event in partnership with the Idler Academy. I’ll be tackling four key areas of classical music:– Baroque, Classical, Romantic and twentieth-century – in the course of the evening, and focussing on a major work from each. And I’ve had fun picking these!

JS Bach: Prelude & Fugue in C major (Well-Tempered Clavier Book 1)

Mozart: B flat String Quartet K458, “the Hunt”

Mahler: Symphony no 1

Stravinsky: Le Sacre du Printemps/Rite of Spring

I’ll analyse the music, illustrate some important moments, provide a glossary of key terms, and put each piece in context. All part of my Classic Discovery series.
