May 21st Virtual Musicale

The Georgia Musicale Group held a pleasant and enjoyable virtual musicale on Thursday, May 21st, 2020, which was attended by nine people. Judy Manganiello opened the musicale with a delightful performance of Chopin's Nocturne, Op. 9, No. 1. Next, Shoko Tanaka played two movements (Allemande and Gigue) of Bach's French Suite in G major. We were then treated to another performance of Bach, as Maggie Frick played three movements (Courante, Sarabande, and Minuet and Trio) of his B minor French Suite. Sam Smith then gave a fascinating presentation on the historical performance database at Carnegie Hall. We learned that Josef Hofmann played the most concerts there out of any other pianist, and that Chopin's Ballade No. 1 is the most performed piano piece at the hall, as well as many other interesting facts. Carol Wazlavek ended the musicale by instructing us on how to publish iPhone videos onto YouTube.
