Friday talk: Dr Graham Griffiths

Find out more below

Dr Graham Griffiths, Stravinsky expert, pianist and Mozart aficionado, held the school spellbound with his talk about Mozart’s early years. The children were amazed by the sophistication of the music that Mozart wrote when he was their age, but were reassured to discover that he was also very naughty and liked cats! Dr Griffiths illustrated his talk with examples beautifully played on the piano, and we all enjoyed discovering the secret to Mozart’s melodic mellifluousness by counting appoggiaturas.
