Bach to Bach

Bach to Bach

The Bach evening held at 8 p.m. on June 6 in Room C6 consisted of items given by some of the more proficient players in the Club, supplemented by recordings of harpsichord, organ, orchestra and choral works. The pianists Leonie Pascoe, Elizabeth Florance and Nell Casey, played "Prelude and Fugue No. 3 in C Sharp," "The French Suite," and "Phantasia in G Minor:" Bernard O'Brien (violin) played the well-known "Air on G String" from the Suite No. 3. The performances were excellent and it was a treat to hear Bach dealt with so competently by young performers. Supper was served afterwards in the Gym.

The Club is arranging a special Maurice Clare-Frederick Page recital for Thursday, June 27, so everyone interested in music is advised to watch the notice board for details. This, recital will be the final one given in New Zealand by Mr. Clair and we know that students will be eager to take advantage of this last opportunity to hear one of the best artists who has ever visited this country.—P.J.M.
