Gen Li/Naufal Mukumi

Two Trinity Laban graduates played piano works of extraordinarily contrasting styles at St Alfege, Greenwich. Li gave us a programme of Bach, Scarlatti and Chopin before bringing tears to my eyes with his delicate, elegant rendition of Debussy’s lovely Images, Book 2. Mukumi then took over the stool and gave an exhibition of thunderous, almost violent, musicianship in an exhilarating half-hour than included Beethoven’s Appassionata and ended with Balakiriev’s Islamey. An astonishing concert.
