|New Season of Putney Music Talks|
Harpsichordist, Jane Clark Dodgson talks to Peter Avis about her life and work
Putney Music has published the programme for the series of talks planned by the society over six months.
Dodgson was one of the UK’s most prolific composers, and like many of his generation, he was a BBC producer and frequent broadcaster. Through meeting his wife, his musical interests extended beyond an already wide range to encompass baroque and music for harpsichord. The evening promises to be rich with anecdote about, and insights into, the figures who enriched the world of British music and broadcasting in the latter half of the Twentieth Century.
Putney Music is a society of music lovers who meet fortnightly from September to April to hear some of the world’s most celebrated musicians talk about their lives and work. Guest speakers come from all fields of music – the concert hall, recital platform, opera, ballet, television and film; and also include producers, broadcasters, critics and writers.
Meetings usually take place fortnightly on Monday evenings at 8.00 p.m. at the The Dryburgh Hall, Putney Leisure Centre, SW15 1BL from September to April. They last for about two hours with a short interval when tea, coffee & wine are available. Members & young persons are admitted for free with visitors charged £8. Annual membership is £35.
