Pi­ano master­class for young play­ers

Bray People - - NEWS -

THE Pi­ano master­class at Bray Mu­sic Cen­tre last Sun­day was a first for some of the young peo­ple tak­ing part. In front of a small au­di­ence, the par­tic­i­pants played a wide se­lec­tion of clas­si­cal favourites from Bach, Mozart, Grieg, Chopin and De­bussy.

Each per­for­mance was fol­lowed by a pub­lic les­son with em­i­nent guest, Lance Coburn. It was a chance to get tips and ad­vice from a pro­fes­sional pi­anist.

Since win­ning first prize at the To­mas­soni In­ter­na­tional Pi­ano Com­pe­ti­tion, Cologne in 2001, Lance has per­formed all over the world as a con­certo soloist and recital­ist. He also broad­casts fre­quently for ra­dio and has re­leased record­ings of cham­ber mu­sic and new works.

Much in de­mand as a solo per­former, cham­ber mu­si­cian and ac­com­pa­nist, Lance is reg­u­larly in­vited to ad­ju­di­cate at nu­mer­ous fes­ti­vals in­clud­ing the Bray Cen­tre Mu­sic Fes­ti­val. He is also a pi­ano lec­turer at the Royal Ir­ish Academy of Mu­sic in Dublin.
