February Round Up

We got an extra day this February, and we made sure to pack it with even more music!


We had two very different recitals in February!

Award winning Luke Jones presented us with a selection of works for piano. His playing has been described as possessing “...extraordinary clarity and a seemingly infallible touch that revealed colours and atmospheres of the most sensitive of stylists…” (Christopher Axworthy – Co-Artistic Director of the Keyboard Trust)

We then had an unusually piano free recital with local group Laiton Trumpet Quartet showcasing arrangements of well-known pieces for 4 trumpets, which is no small feat! Made ever more impressive by how pleasing they were to listen to. A wholeheartedly refreshing programme and superb musicianship blew away the audience at Forsyth - another excellent free recital!

We shared some of our history with a couple of Throwback Thursday posts on our social media.

Look at how our piano showroom has changed since the 1950s!

We also shared the story of this wonderful piano that was made in Germany in 1922, and made its way to Manchester where it was sold to us (twice) before making its way to Salford Museum and Art Gallery. Read the full story here


Our Sheet Music Department shared the love this Valentines Day

They also shared an informative post on Urtext editions

Have you ever looked at your music score and wondered what an 'Urtext' edition is?

In essence an Urtext edition aims to reproduce the 'original intention' of the composer, with no editions to the score by an editor. Publishers such as G. Henle Verlag and Bärenreiter achieve this by studying original manuscripts and prints from composers.
