This year’s series of Performers’ Platforms began in earnest this week with vocal, guitar, piano and violin solos by some of our musicians. Lucia opened the concert with beautiful and poised interpretations of Pergolesi’s and Brahms’ , and Priya brought a Brazilian theme to the concert, captivating the audience with her performances of Prélude No. 4 by Villa-Lobos and by Pernambuco. Angie gave a fiery performance of Rachmaninov’s impressive Prelude in C# minor Op. 3 No. 2 before Jennifer ended the concert on a serene note with her expressive and lyrical rendition of the from Bruch’s Violin Concerto No. 1 in G minor. Thank you to all of the pupils for starting the series so confidently and to Miss Sanders for her skills and time as accompanist.
