Letchworth Music Shop
David’s Music is an institution, tucked away in the most unassuming of provincial towns. Some sources claim there are more trees than people in Letchworth but that doesn’t stop people making their pilgrimages from far and wide to come and check out our outrageously comprehensive range of new and second hand CDs and vinyl, as well as our regular instores which thus far have seen acts ranging from young upstarts like Hadouken to established bands like Ash, The Thrills and Get Cape... getting sweaty in our premises. Between us our knowledge is as comprehensive as our stock, we love what we do and we’re good at it so come and pay us a visit.
Not only are we a Record Shop though. We stock a huge range of DVDs (films, music and special interest) and music books.
Our Next Event
Afternoon Tea with UK’s Foremost Music Critic, Fiona Maddocks, Who Will Discuss and Sign, her New Book, Music for Life In Conversation with Susan Sturrock
Friday 18 November 2016
‘In compiling a list of this kind, I had one rule: the music comes first. I have always resisted the idea of expecting music to feed or prompt an emotional state, so I tried to ask the question the other way round. Why do I want to listen to a particular work at any given moment?’
Bach or Gershwin, Reich or Chopin? What makes us listen to music? How do we choose? Can music reflect the key moments in our lives? How and why does a certain piece inspire, comfort or console? Fiona Maddocks, music critic of the Observer, selects more than a hundred classical works, spanning ten thousand years, that have shaped her own listening. The result is a highly personal treasury of music familiar and rare, ancient and modern, for anyone – expert or newcomer – with curiosity, passion and a readiness to listen. Includes a list of suggested recordings.
Fiona Maddocks is the classical music critic of the Observer. She was founder editor of BBC Music Magazine and chief arts feature writer for the London Evening Standard, and is the author of Hildegard of Bingen: The Woman of Her Age (Faber) and Harrison Birtwistle: Wild Tracks – A Conversation Diary (Faber).
Susan Sturrock is founder-director of Music Talks, an organisation presenting events and courses on classical music. She is also an arts consultant with a current portfolio including strategic planning, mentoring and fundraising. other arts forms, establishing children’s programmes and commissioning imaginative new work.
