Parry Society:
Mr Edward Gardner, Musical Director at the English National Opera


Edward Gardner came to speak to the Parry Society about his life as a composer and conductor. He is one of Britain's leading young composers, as well as being Musical Director of the English National Opera. Having spoken to us about his experiences in the world of professional music, Mr. Gardner played us pieces conducted in different styles and analysed them with us, discussing with how to create an 'authentic' performance of a piece. Lowther ME, Beer MS and Landman MS all took turns conducting DWG on the piano, and received constructive criticism from Mr. Gardner, who was impressed by their conducting. It was a very interesting and valuable evening for all who attended.
