Wallace National Piano Festival
Attended the Wallace National Piano Festival! 4 days of intensive masterclasses and amazing concerts by international pianist Chenyin Li, Read Gainsford and last year's Wallace National Piano Competition winner Jason Bae.
Performed the Beethoven Piano Sonata Op.109 in two masterclasses by Chenyin Li and Christopher Elton! Had great fun and amazing input from both of the pianists!
Also watched the final of the Wallace National Junior Piano Competition which was very inspiring seeing the younger generation performing at such high standard!
One of the highlight of the festival was Read Gainsford's breathtaking performance of the complete Rachmaninov Etudes-tableaux Op.39. It was my first time hearing the whole set performed live and it was definitely one of the most amazing performances i have heard so far!
Overall, the four days of piano music really gave me new inspiration aswell as great motivation to continue exploring this world of piano music!
