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.
