The Putney Music Society is a society of classical music enthusiasts who meet fortnightly at the Dryburgh Hall at Putney Leisure Centre.

The next talk takes place on 2 March and is entitled Composing Myself. It will be given by the prominent British composer and teacher Julian Anderson studied with John Lambert, Alexander Goehr and Tristan Murail. His works include several Prom commissions in a wide variety of genres. He talks to Peter Avis.

The Society enjoys a membership of over two hundred members, some of whom have a considerable knowledge of music while others have very little, but all share a great love of music.

This season they have welcomed David Nettle, Richard Markham, Carolyn Sampson, Ian Partridge, Nicola Benedetti, Lesley Garret, Chi-chi Nwanoku, Marc-Andre Hamelin, Brett Dean, Heather Betts, David Pickard (Director of the Proms), Stephen Walsh, Martin Neary, Andrew Keener and Peter Avis who will be talking about their careers, experiences and anything and everything. Interspersed with recorded musical excerpts (on excellent Hi-Fi equipment).

The meetings generally start at 7.45pm and finish at 9.45pm with refreshments at half time. To join for the whole year it is only £35. Visitors per meeting are £8 and Young Persons are free.

Putney Music: 2019-20 Season


16 March
On the Air and Off the Page.
For some 50 years Stephen Walsh has been among the most vividly communicative of broadcasters, authors and critics. His biographies of Stravinsky and Mussorgsky remain as touchstones, and an acclaimed study of Debussy was published last year. This evening he talks to his friend and contemporary at Caius College Cambridge, Putney Music’s vice-president Martin Neary.

Programmes may be subject to alteration
