January-March 2021

'A Little Night Music'

A series of online videos which will be published regularly on the SMSG Willis organ YouTube Channel. We are delighted that local musician Joe Laredo had the idea for a series of night time inspired music videos featuring his piano playing. Joe has played in several concerts in St Mary & St Giles Church in the past few years, including the memorable and highly entertaining Happy 175th birthday Edvard Grieg, Mud, Mud, glorious mud tribute to Flanders & Swann and Plenty ‘o Nuttin’ in the 1930s. All through 2020 Joe was planning a concert in St Mary & St Giles church for the 250th Birthday of Ludwig van Beethoven on 17 December 2020, involving several musicians, however sadly the concert had to be cancelled due to the pandemic restrictions.

Joe explains the inspiration for ‘A little night music’: “Winter is a time of long nights ... and night has always been an inspiration for composers ... which gave me the idea for this series of informal performances of piano pieces connected with night time."

'A Little Night Music' playlist

First in the series: Joe Laredo plays Beethoven's 'Moonlight' Sonata which features photos of the music and Joe Laredo at the piano, St Mary & St Giles Church at night, the moon and Lake Lucerne at dusk or night.
