More than 40 musicians performed at Watford's first ever Master Music piano festival.

Last month, Clarendon Muse concert hall at Watford Grammar School for Boys hosted a variety of concerts featuring classics including Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf, and works by Beethoven, Schumann, and Debussy.

Many were performed by Chinese concert pianist, recording artist, and published composer Ji Liu, 29, who started playing the piano aged just three, and Australian pianist, composer, and teacher Michael Harvey.

On both weekends of the festival, young talented musicians of all levels and abilities took part in the first set of Master Music piano competitions. They performed to an adjudicating panel of Ji Liu, pianist and teacher Yvonne Behar and classical music philanthropist Doreen Tabor MBE.

The top prize was a visit to Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with famed piano maker Steinway & Sons.
