A piano recital, one of the many activities of “The festival of international culture communication among middle school students in Chengdu”, has been held in CFLS on 19th November.
Students from class 4 to class 9 of senior one have enjoyed a musical banquet given by the renowned pianist Jingge Yan. During the one-hour performance, Mr. Yan introduced to us the music in main historical periods in Western Countries. He talked about the musical features, famous pianists and their pianos in the period of Medieval and Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, Romantic Nationalism, impressionism and Contemporary.
Apart from telling us theories about Western music, he also played one or two representative pieces of each period. Students were either lost in the mysterious and gentle beauty of Beethoven’s “Moonlight Sonata” or in the outpouring of emotion of Chopin’s “Revolutionary Etude” or some other classical piano pieces. After each piece, the applause thundered forth in the hall.
