The Music Society was delighted to welcome the return of young cellist George Wilkes to the Young Musicians’ Evening in October. George, who is a Music Scholar at Warwick School and now studying for GSCEs, has played for the Society a number of times and the audience were therefore able to see how he has developed as a musician and performer since he first came to us. Despite his young years, he plays with great sensitivity and ever growing maturity and we will be watching as he undoubtedly goes from strength to strength in the future.
Superbly supported by professional pianist, Lynn Arnold, who had given us such a wonderful solo performance in September, George’s programme of music was a delight with cello and piano in total harmony. It included Vivaldi’s Cello Sonata no 6 in B flat major, Gustav Holst’s Invocation and Rachmaninov’s wonderful Vocalise. The audience savoured the entire performance and once again appreciated the talent of this young man.
