2019 marked the 15th Anniversary of Future Talent and we celebrated with a concert held at The Lansdowne Club in London on the 27th November.
The programme began with Concerto for 4 Violins in Gmajor by Telemann, skilfully played by Shona, Orchid, Sharon and Hana. It was a beautiful start and was followed by a creative rendition of John Coltrane’s Wise One by Archie (Alto Saxophone) and Scottie (Piano), a performance by new Awardee Katie on Bassoon and a rendition of a Chopin Polonaise by Peter (piano).
The concert included Future Talent alumni from the past 15years – Joy Becker, one of the first supported by the charity, played Beethoven Romance in Fmajor accompanied by Tadashi Imai, and The Melā Quartet (Daniel Bovey, FT Alumnus 2010) played a selection of new and old repertoire with a furious encore of Rimsky Korsakov’s Flight of the Bumblebee to end the evening!
A huge thank you to all who came and supported the event and helped make it a memorable evening for Future Talent staff, musicians and audience alike.
Since our foundation in 2004, our vision has been to achieve an equal reality for young musicians across the UK, regardless of their financial background. We continue to strive towards this goal today.
We are delighted to announce pianist and composer Rekesh Chauhan has joined the Future Talent family.
