Pianist Walter Delahunt performs ‘Clement’s Favourites’. Walter Delahunt, as many of you know, is a gifted pianist who has spent his career on the world stage. Clement Fulton is a gifted 10 year old who has been captivated by the piano ever since his fingers could reach the keys. He loves compositions by Bach, Mozart and Beethoven among many others. Walter will play some of Clement’s favourite pieces, some that Clement has already learned and others that he is eager to master. It will be a delightful program. Among the compositions you will hear are Bach’s Italian Concerto, the C Major Prelude and Fugue from Well-Tempered Clavier and Schumann’s Arabesque Op. 18.
