Club chairman Chris Hough said: “In this lecture /recital, Virginia Black, a renowned performer with a repertoire encompassing Bach, Schubert, Haydn, Rameau, Soler, Scarlatti, Mozart and Beethoven, and a fellow of the Royal Academy of Music, will show how to bring the music of Bach and Scarlatti to life on a modern concert grand piano.
