Renowned Turkish pianist Idil Biret began our Founder's Day Festival (celebrating what would have been Yehudi Menuhin's 99th birthday) in thunderous fashion with a programme of Schumann and Scriabin on 21 April in The Menuhin Hall. The concert was preceded by a fascinating lecture on Scriabin by Damian leGassick (member of the YMS music staff) and was followed the next morning by a public masterclass given by Ms Biret and involving several of the YMS piano students.
