A very entertaining lunchtime recital
Thursday 5 May
Yesterday, the audience at All Saints’ Church were thrilled by a very entertaining concert. Nathaniel Taylor took to the stage first to play two piano pieces: Sonata in E by Scarlatti and then Chopin’s Polonaise. Both pieces were played with great authority and he captured the style well. I particularly liked the virtuosic interlude in the Chopin which was very dramatic.
The concert was then taken over by three talented percussionists: Tom Clough, Anna Gonzalez and George Khan who made a terrific impression with their Buckets Ruckus which as the title suggests was played on buckets. What they did with these three buckets was just amazing! George and Anna then each played a Marimba solo; George the unaccompanied Tambourin and Anna the ever popular Black and White Rag, before Tom joined them again for Malcom Arnold’s Concert Piece for multi percussion. This was a fitting end to a high class and very entertaining concert. Well done to all.
