Music by Franz Liszt, Robert Schumann and Felix Mendelssohn inspired by the German poet Heinrich Heine.
Lene Sahlholdt soprano * Mayda Narvey cello * Bruce Vogt piano
One of the greatest poets of the 19th century German Romantic period, Heinrich Heine (1797-1856) died the same year as Robert Schumann who set much of his elegant love poetry to music.
In this concert we will explore the music of three composers, all born within a year of each other who define the Romantic School and who were inspired by Heine.
All are welcome. Admission at the door £10 Over 60 and concessions £8. £5 under 18’s. A glass of wine and a chance to talk after the concert.
All profits go to the musicians.
Worthy of Springwatch. Swifts are nesting in a house in Lavenham Road, probably for the first time in decades, so watch out for them at low level around Lavenham, Trentham and Elborough.
This will be on the 30th June in St Barnabas church, not on the 26th May as previously advertised. Do let people know?

Yesterday Malcolm and I spent a couple of hours working in the garden at the back of Hanford Close. As some of you will remember this is one of our on going SGRA projects; to turn a dark and unpromising patch of land into a garden for the benefit of the residents , a number of who are elderly or disabled. So far we have planted about 400 bulbs and cleared various areas for future planting and are being supported by a number of the residents, who have been inspired to do their own gardening. We are grateful for the support too of the Wandsworth Big Society Fund and the Council.
