Our Artistic Director closes this year’s Piano Week in style. For the centrepiece of his programme we enter a world of fantasies, dances and things that go bump in the night, by Grieg, Schumann and Debussy. His programme is framed by two great Romantic sonatas, one marking Beethoven’s barnstorming arrival in Vienna, the other, one of Schubert’s great celebrations of life. This tells a supple, bright, and mellifluous tale, written whilst journeying to Salzburg through the Salzkammergut mountains.
Pre-concert talk at 6.30pm (free to ticket holders)
Martin Roscoe talks with piano technician Marianne Bailey; back by popular request following last year’s fascinating discussion, we are promised further glimpses into the world of concert piano preparation.
