What better way to spend a lovely warm and sunny afternoon than attending the fabulous recital by distinguished British pianist, Danielle Salamon?
Her programme of works by Bach (arr. Myra Hess), Haydn, Brahms, Fauré, and Ravel took us on a journey through aspects of the solo piano literature that she has absorbed over a lifetime’s close study. The beauty of her tone was matched by a clarity of musical understanding that allowed the architecture of the music to shine through. We were spellbound by the sheer grace of it all, and the rapturous applause that followed each piece led to a delightfully phrased Beethoven encore. This was a concert that will resonate in the memory of those who heard it for many years.
