AmazonArt Concert 31st July 2014

 

On the 31st July I am playing in an AmazonArt concert at the Bloomsbury Church in Central London (nearest tube Tottenham Court Road).  The concert starts at 7.30pm.

In the first half I will be playing  :-

Brahms Opus 119- Intermezzos and Rhapsodie

J.S. Bach – Toccata in E Minor

I will also be playing the UK Premiere of Wemilere.  It is a piece based on an African chant that I am hoping to play with drums.

In the second half I am playing 4 hands pieces with my good friend Neus Guiu Ritort.

We will be playing a number of Hungarian dances by Brahms,  a selection of pieces from the Spanish suite by Albeniz and my arrangement of the Moises Simons piece “The Peanut Vendor”  for 4 hands.

Masterclass

masterclass

On the 21st June I hosted a masterclass for some of my students.  Professor Nigel Clayton of the Royal College of Music came and conducted the masterclass for students in my garden music room.  Nigel is brilliant at  teaching students and making a masterclass a fun and engaging event.

We were delighted that Hugh Wooldridge managed to make it as he has very kindly loaned me his Bechstein piano that proudly resides in the music room.
