On Friday 2nd March, the Oudang Room was transformed into an intimate recital room.
The purpose of this special event was to host a piano concert to celebrate the arrival of the new Yamaha C3 Grand Piano, donated to Aiglon by a generous parent.
The concert began with an amusing piano ‘trio’ (Le Secret by Leonard Gautier) performed by Mr Martineau, Mr Gaston and Mr Mason – demonstrating that you can fit six hands on one keyboard. Excellent performances followed from Mr Scupham, Mr Baynton and Nancy (Le Cerf, Year 9) who all explored different genres of piano music. The highlight of the evening was a stunning performance of the whole of Beethoven’s ‘Pathetique’ Sonata by Aimi (Exeter, Year 10) who recently achieved her ATCL piano diploma qualification.
It is hoped that piano recitals will become a regular feature of the music schedule.
