Year 12’s Lucy report on last weekend’s Music trip to Snape Maltings

26 Nov 21

Music students travelled to Snape maltings with our Director of Music Mrs Kent and Miss Barnes our Singing Teacher last weekend, to see and experience the Sinfonia of London with pianist Pavel Kolesnikov performing live.  Year 12's Lucy provided a delightful report. 

On Saturday evening we were treated to a live performance by the Sinfonia of London and the incredible pianist Pavel Kolesnikov, who played his debut of the Britten Piano Concerto at Snape Maltings.  We were even given the chance to meet Pavel during the interval and ask some insightful questions about his experiences as an international pianist.   

We heard pieces from John Ireland, Benjamin Britten and Ralph Vaughan-Williams.  Britten’s Piano Concerto especially gave Pavel the change to showcase his incredibly talent - all were amazing to listen to and experience his spell-binding live performance. 

 It was a real education for us to see how a professional orchestra operates, as well as witness the synchronicity and team work required to not only play together well, but convey the emotions of each piece with depth and emotion. 

Overall, (other than a bumpy bus ride over the speed bumps for those of us sat at the back) the trip was inspiring and great fun - it’s great to be able to see and hear live music again!
