Clare Kennington is a local young violinist. She began studying the violin at the age of 4 and went on to study with Marina Deprossky and Lucia Ibraganova for 3 years before giving her first public performance at the age of 9. When she was 12 she moved to The Purcell School of music, as a scholar under the Government's Music and Ballet Award Scheme and has been with Carol Slater since then. At her first solo recital, when she was 13, she performed works by Kreisler, Bloch, Wienlawski, Lalo, Granados and Tchaikovsky. During this academic year, Clare has given recitals at Loseley House and Cleveland Lodge (the latter as Dorking Decorative and Fine Arts Society's Young Artist 2002), and won the Under 17s String Soloist prize, the Godelias Trophy, at the Godalming Festival.
I took the photos and designed this cover for Clare. The aim was that sales of the CD might help in her family's quest to raise money to go towards the purchase of the 18th Century Italian violin that has been on loan to Clare. The violin was made by Carlo Antonio Testore in 1743 and provides the quality of sound so important for her continuing improvement in her quest to become a soloist.
