Sounding the Century

Fri 25 Apr 2014 @ 17:00 - Sun 27 Apr 2014 @ 15:00


The 20th century covers the widest stylistic diversity in the musical repertory, and our weekend will explore the rich variety of experiences on offer.  The event is designed as an informal house party, and guests need only the ability to enjoy music, since no technical knowledge is required. The music examples will be provided on excellent hi-fi equipment.

Terry Barfoot is director of Arts in Residence. He writes widely on music for Britain’s leading journals, orchestras, festivals and record companies. A well-known figure in the musical life of southern England, he lectures at Oxford and other universities, and is Publications Consultant to the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra.

Ian Lowes studied at Durham University and at the Janáček Academy in the Czech Republic. For many years he was a professional horn player, before becoming head of Composition and Academic Music at Bryanston School. He is an active composer and conductor, and is an international examiner for the Associated Board.

Course members will arrive on Friday at 5pm and depart on Sunday afternoon. Arts in Residence and Milton Hill offer an excellent cuisine including dinners with wine.
Price to include all meals, wine,  course fees and accommodation.
