CLSG lunchtime concerts

CLSG student playing the piano

One of our music teachers, Dr Alexander Soares, organised the Spectrum concert on Monday 17 January as part of the new CLSG lunchtime series. The concert featured music from the 20th and 21st centuries, with a mix of styles including jazz, folk and classical. One of the highlights was a series of fragmentary pieces by Hungarian pianist and composer György Kurtág, performed by year 7s Amelia, Ria and Bliss. The short movements showcase the composer’s experimental approach in the search of musical truth and intensive expression and were tackled brilliantly by our three young pianists.  Instrumental soloists also included Sophia (Y12) who played a spirited movement from Ronald Binge's saxophone concerto, and Kriya (Y9) who gave a lively rendition of "The Grasshopper" on the piano. The concert was rounded up by our year 9 string quartet who played the cheerful Rumba Romp by Richard Kershaw. Many congratulations to our players for excellent performances all round.
