See Young Violinist David Shaw in Concert
Tomorrow in London, David Shaw will be playing a programme of six pieces for violin and piano in a lunch time concert. If you want to pop along in your lunch break and have a listen then you will be pleased to know that you won’t need a ticket to be admitted, just make sure you arrive in time for the 1pm start.
David Shaw is only 21 but has shown the most amazing musicianship in his violin playing. He originally hails from North Wales but is now studying at the Royal Academy of Music in London – arguably one of the best and most prestigious music colleges in the world.
David’s programme consists of some stunning violin music – several of the pieces on the agenda are thought to be classics for the accomplished violinist. The concert will start with Schulhoff’s ‘Sonata for violin and piano No 2’ which will then be followed by Shchedrin’s ‘In the style of Albeniz’. Next is Bela Bartok’s ‘Rhapsody No 1 for violin and piano’ and then ‘Danse espagnole No 1 from La vida breve’ by Manuel de Falla. The final two pieces of music in the concert are undoubtedly the most moving. First is the ‘Hebrew melody for violin and piano’ by Joseph Achron and the concert will end with Massenet’s ‘Meditation from Thais’.
