Conducting debut at Abbey Road Studios

"It was a fantastic way to sit in with renowned institute engineers and alongside other students to get a real insight into the recording process. It felt really special to share a space which has been home to so many iconic recordings. I hope that it is the first of many trips as a composer and conductor in the future."

Playing in one of the world’s most iconic studios, musicians and composers from the University of West London (UWL) spent a day at Abbey Road to make the most of impressive links with the music industry.

More than 40 students from UWL’s London College of Music (LCM) BMus (Hons) Music Performance and BMus (Hons) Composition courses took part in a full day of recording at the world-famous venue this week, having the chance to showcase their skills and learn from leading experts.

Performers, members of UWL’s Camerata orchestra, rehearsed and recorded classics from Mozart through to Milhaud, as well as a piece written by final-year composition student, Francesco Redica – and all led by LCM’s trainee composers and conductors.

The session was all part of an ongoing partnership between UWL and the Abbey Road Institute which allows students to learn from each other and hone their performance, conducting, and recording skills with a full orchestra.
