Strings Masterclass and Workshop

The string players were treated to some top tips from Bradfield’s Director Of Music, Matt Lowe and violinist Courtenay Cleary in a string workshop last week.  Our two string quartets performed the movements they have been working on and received some detailed coaching, the results of which are already starting to be seen in their playing.  This was top level stuff and it was a joy to see the boys benefiting from the teaching of two wonderful players at the top of their profession.  A the end of the session we were treated to the most stunning and exhilarating violin and cello duet – Johan Halvorsen’s Passacaglia (After Handel).   What an inspiration to our young players and many thanks to Bradfield for lending us their teachers!
