Bromley High School GDST (Girls Day School Trust) has made musical history as the first All Steinway Girls School in the world.
“Our educational philosophy values the creative arts very highly,” said Headmistress Angela Drew, “and we have demonstrated our commitment to the arts not only by investing in these beautiful instruments but in additional staffing to enhance musical opportunities available to pupils in local primary schools.”
Caroline Daniel, Director of Music, said she looks forward to not only having her students “embark on a first-class musical journey, but ensuring that other local musicians benefit” from the school’s All Steinway status.

Mitsuko Uchida discusses Schumann as weirdo, tempo as translation, the difficulty of Mozart and the transcendence of late Schubert.

She is one of the great pianists — equally at home speaking many languages and many composers: Bach, Berg, Beethoven, Chopin, Debussy, Mozart, Schumann, Schubert, Schoenberg, all played with romance and imagination, yet also with spine and verve.
