Pianist draws in her audience
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.”
