Absolute Classics Concert Review ~ November 2018
Having flown in from Australia on the morning of the first concert, flautist Stephen Clark really was a “Super Man” in his delivery of a spectacular recital with pianist, Ashley Beauchamp. The pair gave four varied concerts that took inspiration from all over the world, linking the famous flute repertoire with arrangements of violin works and new and vibrant contemporary compositions.
The duo enhanced the performances with witty repartee that made the concerts completely accessible for all those attending.
On Friday morning, Stephen and Ashley generously gave their time in support of Absolute Classics’ education programme and worked with over 150, S2 & S3 pupils at Annan Academy.
Principal teacher of music, Mr Brand said:
“The workshops were incredibly accessible and well lead by Stephen and Ashley who gave instructive comment on both the music performed and life as a professional musician. Not only did this provide an inspirational cultural experience for our students, it contributed to our work in
Developing the Young Workforce (DYW) and employability skills. The feedback from both students and staff was overwhelmingly positive.”
