We were delighted to welcome back to the School more prizewinning alumni for a delightfully eclectic concert in The Menuhin Hall.
The Linos Piano Trio, featuring alumni Prach Boondiskulchok (currently also an assistant piano teacher at the School) and Vladimir Waltham, together with Purcell School alumnus Konrad Elias-Trostmann, performed rarely heard sonatas by C P E Bach (whose three-hundredth anniversary falls this year), as well as Schumann's Piano Trio No 3 in G minor.
Also performing were the guitar duo of alumni (and YMS's first ever guitar students) Tom Ellis and Laura Snowden (also assistant guitar teacher at the School) who enchanted the audience with music by Dodgson, de Falla and Guiliani.
The Linos Piano Trio were winners of the 2014 Royal Philharmonic Society’s Albert and Eugenie Frost Prize for outstanding young ensemble.
Tom and Laura were winners of the 2012 Ligita International Guitar Duo Competition.
