Friday concerts from the School of Music

This Friday (19/11/10) the School of Music are holding two events for you to enjoy for free in the Clothworkers Centenary Concert Hall.

The regular Friday lunchtime recital series provides a wide ranging programme to suit all tastes. To round off the week of Russian music, former principal soprano with the Kiev State and National Opera House, Nataliya Kompaniyets-Jouri, is joined by our resident repetiteur Daniel Gordon for a programme of songs and piano pieces by Taneyev and Medtner.

The event starts at 13:05 with light refreshments from 12:30.

On Friday evening skip the rush hour and enjoy an evening of music from The University of Leeds Gamelan Ensemble. They will perform a collection of traditional Javanese music and world premieres of new compositions on the School's Javanese gamelan, The Golden Thread, which came to Leeds four years ago from Java. The instruments - bronze gongs and metallophones, drums and a wooden xylophone - were hand-forged and hand-carved in the court city of Surakarta in Central Java. The ensemble is directed by Finola Merivale, who has worked with Mel Mercier in U.C.C. and John Jacobs and Neil Sorrell in York.

The event starts at 18:00 with light refreshments from 17:30.
