Alasdair Cameron’s first two sonatas, both by Scarlatti seemed to get off to an uncertain start and he never really seemed to get on top of the music. But when he went on to play Mozart’s Fantasie in C minor he had got over his nerves and played like a master. Mozart’s Sonata in C major followed in like fashion and by now there was a smile on his face.
The hour long recital concluded with Beethoven’s Rondo in C major, a short piece, followed by an old favourite, his Sonata in C minor op.13, the Grande Sonate Pathétique. The audience was delighted and their applause encouraged Alasdair Cameron to play a short encore.
Event: Saturday 14 August 2.30 pm.
