I’ve been responsible for organising this charity concert with the Manager of Elim Church Centre, Mr. Tony Pash and his staffs of the church. This is an annual event where we bring together kids, parents, friends and local community, have a bit of a sing along. One of the programe was the Violin and Chinese instrument 中阮 DUET. There were also some refreshment to share after this Gala concert; it’s just a really good way to get into the Christmas spirit.”

“Selly Oak Music School Students can share their love with children in Uganda. I think this is a very meaning event. Especially young children can learn the value of helping each other. “

Scriabine Piano Etudes Op. 8 No. 2

Alexander Nicholaievich Scriabine, [ Aleksandr Nikolajevič Skr’abin] ( 1872 -1915), was a Russian pianist and composer. His music is mainly inspired by Chopin. The difficulty of his Etudes sometime can be harder than Chopin. Their major difference is that Chopin works focus more on the musical side, while Scriabine highlight in technical elements. This etudes should be played with tempo rubato and rhythmic flexibility. Performers should use their imagination and creativity when interpreting this piece.

F. Liszt: Liebestraum arr. by Tertis

Franz Liszt (1811 – 1886), renowned throughout Europe for his great skill as a performer during the 19th century, he is said to have been the most technically advanced and very likely, the greatest pianist of all time. He was also an important and leading composer, a notable piano teacher, a conductor who contributed significantly to the modern development of the art. In 1850, Liszt published two versions of Liebestraum: a lied for soprano and piano, and a notturno for solo piano. Performance today is Lionel Tertis’ arrangement of this piece. The viola leads the melody while the piano is still quite demanding (it’s Liszt after all) but two cadenzas has been replaced by the viola. Listen to the harmonic steps of the first measures: it’s incredibly romantic and typical of the style of the Hungarian master.
