Art Preludes – Manet

Here’s a short video from the recent concert at the Royal Albert Hall which was run by EVC Music. Students from all over the world came over to play. A piece of mine was included – ‘Manet’, from the publication ‘Art Preludes’; five pieces taking their inspiration from impressionist painters and written in a classical/jazz/café style. The level is at around grades 7-8. This one evoked ‘A Bar at the Folies-Bergère’, Manet’s famous painting which happens to be at the nearby Courtauld Gallery.It’s originally a solo piano piece, and Elena Cobb had added bass and drums for this concert. This was such a poised and confident performance from Laura Kesiak, who is only 11 years old, and piano is her second instrument!!
