Robertson Village Music Society

Today I attended a very pleasant Chamber Music concert, put on by the Robertson Village Music Society.
The concert started with performances by Bellatrix (a recorder quartet) The members of the group are Alana Blackburn, Laura Bell, Alicia Crossley, and Felicity Clark. They performed a range of pieces from the baroque to modern.
Here is an image of Laura, playing a Bass Recorder.
They were followed by a violin duo - April Kelson and Jamie Pollock.
After an interval we heard Gabriella Pusner who performed Beethoven's Sonata in A Major for violin and piano (Op. 23), in conjunction with Jamie Pollock (on Violin).
Then Gabriella combined with April Kelson to perform Brahms' Sonata in D Minor for Violin and Piano (Op. 108).I found the Beethoven familiar (at least in style), but I was quite taken by the Brahms piece with which I was not familiar.

Robert Goldsack is very pleased with the sound of the Kawai Grand Piano, which the Society has acquired.
The Robertson Village Music Society will host visiting concert performers four times a year, on the last Wednesday of February, May, August and November. Inquiries may be made to Robert Goldsack, of Meryla St.
