Music Scholars’ Recital

As a dry run for the annual Royal Over-Seas League Music Scholars’ Gala Concert in London, Music Scholars gave a fine performance at the Wiltshire Music Centre in Bradford on Avon as a fund raiser for local talented young musicians less fortunate than Marlburians. The Wiltshire Music Centre concert hall is a fine venue with generous acoustics and a perfect setting for the varied and colourful programme offered. The audience was responsive and delighted by some extraordinary ensemble and solo performances, perhaps the highlights of which were Henry Williams’ stunning solo double bass item, Big Bad Wold by Jon Deak (which includes a speaking part for Henry as well as playing the double bass) and Dvorak’s Piano Quintet in A major, a tour de force of a performance, played with real panache by Savannah Brown, Eleanor Bonney, Natalie Evans, Ben Christopher and Zhivka Ivanova.
