A Masterclass from Mutter
The music department was delighted to welcome the violinist and leader of the BBC Concert orchestra Charles Mutter for a performance and series of masterclasses this week.
We were privileged to hear Charles in a lunchtime recital in which he joined Jill Rose (the Perse’s Head of Keyboard) in performances of the virtuosic Bartok Rhapsody and the rapturous Elgar Violin Sonata. The lunchtime concert drew a sizeable audience of enthusiastic string and keyboard players who were clearly inspired by the performance.
Charles gave a number of masterclasses to string quartet groups during the afternoon, especially some of our younger groups who we were keen slot maschinen to be involved in such a prestigious opportunity.
