“Singing with Hammers – a Brief History of the Piano”
Paul Drayton, the veritable 'Mr Music' of Cornwall, is making a very welcome return to the Roseland Music Society.
Well known for his work as musical director of Duchy Opera, Paul's musical talents are remarkable. He's a conductor, composer, pianist, teacher, and has long experience of delivering hugely popular illustrated talks on a wide range of musical subjects.
In 2005 he entertained the Society's members with a Nordic excursion into the life of Edvard Grieg, in March 2009 he took us on a jazz-fuelled trip down the Swanee exploring the fascinating rhythms of George and Ira Gershwin and in January 2015 he guided his audience through the idiosyncratic life and music of Eric Satie.
Paul’s February concert will see the public début of his latest talk, offering a fascinating excursion through the development of the piano and piano music over the centuries. As always, it promises to be seriously informative and hugely enjoyable.
