We are completely delighted that Steven Osborne will close the Piano Week for us, his first visit in a very long time. One of the pre-eminent pianists of his generation, he begins with a haunting curtain-raiser by Schubert, followed by a group of evergreen pieces by Debussy, ending with the joyous abandon of his L’Isle joyeuse. Finally powerful, rich tone-poems by Rachmaninov bring this year’s Piano Week to a close.
Pre-concert talk at 6.30pm (free to ticket holders)
Tonight’s pre-concerrt talk will be given by Steven Osborne.
