A concert of music by Turina, Liszt and Granados, and transcriptions of songs by The Prodigy performed by “rising star” of the piano, Emmanuel Vass, at one of London’s most unique and quirky venues, Brunswick House. The performance will take place in the opulent Saloon room. Tickets include a glass of prosecco on arrival.

When I am not teaching, I have lots of musical ventures on the go – performing as a harpsichordist, organising the Dulwich Piano Festival and curating the South London Concert Series (SLCS) with my piano teaching colleague Frances Wilson. SLCS is a series of concert mixing contemporary classical music with socialising in unique and unusual venues in London. Here are a few photos and videos from the event so you can get an idea of what we do!

Tunes to inspire young pianists – James Bond Concert Etude & Bohemian Rhapsody by Emmanuel Vass

Earlier in May this year, I was very fortunate to be introduced to up and coming young pianist Emmanuel Vass by my colleague Frances Wilson. Frances had met Manny on his tour for his CD, “From Bach to Bond“. Manny very kindly agreed to perform at the launch event for the London Piano Meetup Group and was so popular that we decided to book him to perform at the South London Concert Series in January. Unsurprisingly, the tickets are nearly sold out for his recital even though we are two months away. Manny is Classic FM’s latest featured artist which is a fantastic achievement for a recent graduate and such a young pianist.

Students age 8+ are invited to come and hear Emmanuel perform in Waterloo on the 27th January. You can book tickets here. Here are some videos of him in action to provide some inspiration! Manny has arranged various Bond themes into this stunning Concert Etude:

This version of Bohemian Rhapsody is brilliant too:
