Talented teenage musicians to display their skills
Some of the country’s most outstanding teenage musicians are to give a lunchtime recital in Rickmansworth on Wednesday, November 29.
Star students from the Purcell School in Bushey, Britain’s oldest specialist school for young musicians, will be presenting a programme of solo instrumental pieces and songs.
There will be music by Liszt, Mozart and Brahms, and lesser known composers such as the French-born American harpist Marcel Grandjany and England’s Jonathan Dove, a highly-respected composer of operas, choral works and film music.
The Purcell School has a reputation for nurturing the very best young musical talent, including three recent BBC Young Musician of the Year winners, Lara Melda (2010), Martin James Bartlett (2014) and Alexandra Ridout (Jazz Award 2016).
The students who will be performing at this month’s Three Rivers Music Society concert are Heather Brooks (harp), Sophia Jin (voice), Serguei Gonzalez Pavlova (violin), Ibai Pijoan Markaida (cello) and Bradley Ng (piano).
