Symphony of colours
Talented Year 8 pianist Amelie has used lockdown to experiment with her music using the time to compose and record her own 10 minute piece called ‘symphony of colours’.
A delicate and accomplished piece of music, Amelie used colour as her inspiration, commenting: “Since lockdown, I've been working on a personal project which I named ‘symphony of colours’. The idea was to compose a short piece of music to represent how a colour sounds in my mind”. With seven different colours represented, the composition begins with yellow and cascades through red, purple, blue, white, grey and green.
Margaret Heywood, Head of Senior Girls, praised Amelie, “Wow, amazing! It must have taken a lot of hard work and is an incredible piece of work, I nearly cried”. Daniel Gravett, Senior Girls Head of Music, added: “I think you will agree that this is an outstanding piece of work. Our balanced curriculum of academic and artistic subjects at Claires Court enables us to explore our pupils’ passions in depth, allowing them to thrive”.
Lasting nearly 10 minutes, you can listen to the full composition here.
