OB Graham Griffiths returns to give musicological lectures
On Wednesday 13 January we welcomed back OB Graham Griffiths for two musicological lectures.
The first, for a select number of sixth form pupils, was entitled An Introduction to Musicology and contained a fascinating insight into the passions of a musicologist and the reasons why someone might choose to pursue this path after school.
The second lecture was entitled The astonishing master Mozart. This lecture-recital provided an insight into the young Mozart’s life and his early works and contained live performances of a number of the piano compositions. We were all struck by Graham’s genuine passion and enthusiasm for his subject.
We now treasure a copy of his latest book Stravinsky’s Piano and we look forward to seeing him again in the future.
