The Edwardian Cello
Miss Melanie Dennerly, Violoncello
Mr. Michael Lunts at the Pianoforte
Travel back in time to the Edwardian era in this recreation of a typical musical evening from 1912. The Titanic has recently sunk on her maiden voyage and you are invited to join the ‘Great Tottering Music Society’ which is hosting a concert in aid of the Titanic Relief Fund. With the Suffragettes making their voices heard throughout the land how appropriate, if still a little daring, to have a female cellist presenting the programme! Musically, though, this is still very much the age of Gilbert and Sullivan and of Edward Elgar. The cello is becoming a more popular solo instrument on the back of such pieces as Saint-Saëns’ ‘The Swan’ and Mendelssohn’s ‘Song without Words’, as well as Mr. Elgar’s own ‘Salut d’Amour’, all of which feature in this nostalgic and witty musical entertainment recreating a bygone age. Mr. Lunts even promises a few vocal items from his extensive repertoire of comic songs from the period.
