|Stephen Walsh to Give Next Putney Music Society Talk|
Broadcaster author and critic talks Putney Music’s vice-president Martin Neary
The Putney Music Society is a society of classical music enthusiasts who meet fortnightly at the Dryburgh Hall at Putney Leisure Centre.
Their next talk takes place on 16 March and is entitled 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.
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).
