On Wednesday evening, 5th October, Aperitif Recitals presented the sixteen year old piano prodigy Michael Ng and the Bach specialist, organist Craig Nathan, at its twelfth concert at St Mary's Church.
Michael passed his Grade 8 with almost full marks at the age of ten and then astonishingly gained the professional piano diploma DipABRSM two years later. He played music by Chopin, Liszt and Beethoven and concluded with an encore La Campenella by Liszt. He received prolonged and rapturous applause and calls of 'bravo' from an audience of at least 150.
Craig Nathan, who also won professional diplomas at an early age in both piano and organ, and who is now director of music at Aylesbury Grammar School, provided the second half of the recital with a masterly performance at the organ of The Passacaglia and Fugue in C minor by JS Bach
All Aperitif Recitals are video screened so that all may see as well as hear. Wine and canapes are enjoyed before, during and after the concerts which lasts no longer than 45 minutes.
Two recitals are presented each year. Please keep an eye on this website for details of future events.
