Rising Stars concert

Rising Stars concert, 27 January 2024

The first concert of 2024 was on Saturday 27th January at 7pm in Holy Trinity Church, Bramley – see attached flier.   Paul Mnatsakanov, an undoubted ‘Rising Star’, came to us from the Royal College of Music, and here is the full programme for his piano recital:

  • W.A. Mozart: Sonata No. 11 in A major, K. 331 "Alla turca" 
  • L. van Beethoven: Sonata No. 13 in E flat major, Op. 27 No. 1 "Quasi una fantasia" 
  • M. Mussorgsky: Pictures at an Exhibition

The Steinway Grand was specially serviced and prepare in readiness.  For some background to the piano and the concert series, see this article which recently appeared in the Guildford Dragon

Two charities were supported at this concert – the RCM Hardship Fund as usual, plus (as a one-off) the Bramley Music/Steinway fund, which is paying for the piano’s refurbishment.

Beethoven in Bramley Nov 2021

Bramley Music’s first post-lockdown concert on 4th September - ‘Beethoven in Bramley’ with concert pianist Maureen Galea - was sold out within just a few days!  As a result, we announced a repeat of the concert in November 2021, and that was also sold out within just a few days.   Clearly we had been missing live music!
