Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - PEOPLE IN PICTURES -

APIANIST gave her au­di­ence a treat when she played a med­ley of mu­sic.

Cather­ine Leonard per­formed at the United Re­formed Church, in Ayles­bury End, Bea­cons­field on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 13.

The pi­anist stud­ied mu­sic at King’s Col­lege London and pi­ano at the Royal Academy of Mu­sic.

She be­gan her recital with a less well known piece by Liszt; Bene­dic­tion de Dieu dans la soli­tude, this was fol­lowed by two Schu­bert Im­promp­tus No. 3 in G Flat and the Wa­ter­fall in A Flat.

To end the recital Cather­ine played two of Chopin’s works, Noc­turne No. 20 in c sharp mi­nor and Waltz No.11 in a mi­nor.

Or­gan­iser Elaine Tu­dor Wil­liams said: “The in­ti­macy of Cather­ine’s play­ing drew the au­di­ence in to her mu­si­cal world and her per­sonal plea­sure was con­ta­gious. We look for­ward to her next recital in 2015.”
