Annual General Meeting

(1)Eric's programme consisted entirely of excerpts from "Tristan".

(2) Although I did not become a member of the Society until nine years later, I believe I was present on this occasion. The programme included the recently-released record of Haydn's "Nelson" Mass, conducted by David Willcocks, and also a record of Richard Strauss's "Don Quixote". As was usual in Tom Pilling's programmes, these were complete works, not excerpts. There were other works too, but I've forgotten what. I think Schubert's "Die Schöne Müllerin" was played, but it was getting late so I made my apologies and set off home. (The Pillings kept very Bohemian hours in those days!) As I was leaving I noticed the aforementioned Schubert record, out and ready to be played. That would be another hour to go!
