Royal College of Music Junior Department Residency
29th – 30th Nov 2014
Three young pianists aged 11-17 came over from the Royal College of Music Junior Department led by their teacher Professor Yekaterina Lebedeva. During their short stay, a group of ten local young pianists from the academy had the opportunity to receive masterclasses from Professor Lebedeva, and this was followed by a buffet lunch for all the students and parents to have together with the visiting group. The residency concluded with a concert given by the three visiting pianists, starting with John Gallant performing a programme of Bach, Czerny and Grieg, followed by Theodore Hayes with a programme of Scarlatti, Czerny, and Grieg, and concluding with Veronika Krasheninnikova performing an engaging combination of Bach, Beethoven and Chopin.
