Young Performers - November 2010

The penultimate concert of the Young Performers' Concert Series generated a modest but enthusiastic audience. The soloist Stephanie Oade (cello) accompanied by Daniel Swain on piano, performed a fantastically varied programme with style and panache. The concert began with Handel's Sonata in G minor which tied in splendidly with the Foundling Museum's Gerald Coke Handel collection. Then onto the spine tingling Elegie by Faure, a performance that sent shivers through the audience. To finish? A zealous Beethoven Sonata in A major which brought the recital to an outstanding end. It was a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon.
As ever, our thanks go to the Musicians Benevolent Fund for their sponsorship and the Foundling Museum for providing this wonderful venue.

Please be sure to mark the 2nd December in your diaries, it is the last concert of our series and features three young performers from the Purcell School.
