Shield Steinway

Keyboard and Chamber Music 2016

The audience in the LES Music School Recital Hall was treated to a fantastic display of talent and commitment in the annual Keyboard and Chamber Music concert on Thursday 28 April.  Audience descriptions of  the event included “stunning” and “breathtaking” and the evening was evidence of the quality our recently acquired All-Steinway School status is capable of inspiring.

Seventeen ensembles were involved with 37 participants from years 6 to 13, some of them multitasking on different instruments and groups. The packed hall enjoyed the varied programme which in the first half included quartets (“The Owl and the Cuckoo” and “Summer Storms”), four piano duets by Peter Warlock including the rarely heard “Beethoven’s Binge” and “The Old Codger”,  Quintessential performing Three Shanties by Malcolm Arnold, the final movement of Mozart’s Quintet for Piano and Winds in E flat and finishing with the spectacular Sonata for Piano Four Hands by Poulenc performed by senior pianists Avishka and Alex.

After a short interval, Ravel’s enchanting Mother Goose Suite started the second half with each of its five movements performed by five different partnerships commencing with our FFD duo, Brendan and Yash . Shostakovich’s haunting Largo movement from the Piano Trio no. 2 in e minor was then skillfully perfomed by a year 9 piano trio. Dvorak was the final composer of the evening with the  Slavonic Dance Op. 72 No. 2 for piano duet and the first two movements of the Dumky Piano Trio, bringing the concert to a dramatic close. Special mention should be given to Danushka and Rhea who each not only performed several times during the evening, but also showcased two instruments.
