Concert review 2019-07-22 Lewis Scott
Lewis, a young and keen instrumentalist provided our concert and was assisted in ‘setting up’ by his family. It was apparent that they are all very enthusiastic, in itself appealing by their dedication. Lewis produced a rounded selection of music with a bias toward theatre organ, all played faultlessly but played ‘straight’ and at a tempo that seemed to warrant a little more pace. His personal style perhaps is still developing together with his audience repartee, nevertheless, so rewarding to see a young and talented performer at the keyboard.
Some of the music played included – Colditz theme, Murder on the orient express, Hushaby mountain, A night in Tunisia, Tenderly, The last waltz (Englelbert Humperdink), Midnight in Moscow. Tonight, Don’t go breaking my heart, your song (Elton John). Quando Quando, Teco Teco. Stranger on the shore (Acker Bilk). Theme from ET.
After the interval – I’m still standing (Elton john). Stardust, Telstar, My Cherie Amour, Take the ‘A’ train, Titanic theme, A medley from Westside story,
For the encore Co Co Cabana.
Lewis’s instrument was a Roland Atelier AT900C with full pedalboard
