Piano Recital by Ian Houston

On Saturday, June 16th, Arusha School was honoured by a visit from Ian Houston, a young Nairobi pianist. The first piece of music he played, was called "Presto". It was an exciting and thrilling piece, composed by Galuppi. He also played a Polonaise in A minor by Chopin and various pieces by Rachmaninov. We were very interested to hear two Bagatelles which Ian Houston had composed himself. Altogether his playing was most enjoyable and we called him back for several encores. At the end of the performance some of us asked him for his autograph, before he left to give a concert at the Little Theatre.
