Piano recital by Theresa Yu - 7th Nov 2015

A delight in every way! - an evening of intense musicality, brought to us by a charming young lady to whom we wish every future success.  Theresa is only 19 and a student at the Royal College of Music, but her performance demonstrated maturity beyond her years and a wonderful combination of great lyricism with power aplenty when required.  The programme comprised:

  • Beethoven: Sonatas No 17 in D minor, Op.31 No.2; and No 31 in A flat major, Op.110

  • Chopin: Nocturne No 17 in B major, Op.62 No.1

  • Bach: Toccata in E minor BWV 914

  • Schubert: Impromptu in B flat, Op.142 No.3

  • Granados: The Maiden and the Nightingale


The final movement of Beethoven's next-to-last sonata, with which the evening closed, runs the entire gamut of human emotion.  Forget the X-Factor, this is a work with "wow factor" and the audience loved it.  Huge thanks to Theresa for a fabulous evening.
