Jayson Gilham Piano Recital Review

By Barnaby Miln - Posted on 23 August 2011

Show details
Music @ 100 Princes Street
Running time: 
Beethoven, Piano Sonata No 28 in A, Op 101
Jayson Gilham (piano)

Jayson Gilham was born in Queensland in Australia and initially studied at the Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University before recently completing at Masters Degree at the Royal Academy of Music in London.

Jayson Gilham’s style of playing which was careful constrained and masterly was entirely in keeping with Piano Sonata No 28. Beethoven was almost totally deaf when he wrote his late period sonatas and No 28 was the first in the series.

Yet again there was a full house for a Breakfast Recital to admire the playing of the talented pianist. Beethoven, it is reported, only saw one of his 32 sonatas played publicly - this was the one.
