Ryan, a graduate of the RNCM and a current student at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama begins our lunchtime emerging artists series. Ryan was recently awarded first prize in the Brant International Piano Competition and the fourth prize in the Dudley International Piano Competition and has performed in many distinguished venues throughout the UK and Europe. Ryan will play J. S. Bach’s relentless, energetic and chromatic Fifth English Suite followed by two works in theme and variation form. Bernstein’s Touches draws on his eclectic compositional skills fusing both jazz and contemporary classical elements together whilst Rachmaninoff’s late work, Variations on a theme by Corelli opens with the familiar Baroque theme, La Folia, which he playfully and daringly explores with a variety of textures and characters.

Pavel Kolesnikov was a member of BBC Radio 3’s New Generation Artists from 2014 to 2016 and his recording of Mazurkas was nominated by Gramophone magazine as one of their “10 best recordings of Chopin”!  The first half of the evening’s performance will transport us to an aural gallery of works evoking the innocence of child’s play, their toys and imaginings, interspersed with adult contemplations and reflections. Chopin’s Nocturne is considered his greatest emotional and masterly expression of a great and powerful grief whilst Schumann’s Fantasie was born out of his distress from being separated from Clara.

Saturday 21st July, 7.30pm – Martin Roscoe

Festival Director and internationally acclaimed concert pianist, Martin Roscoe, concludes the 2018 Ribble Valley International Piano Week with a fifty year window into the keyboard delights of the masters; Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert.  Opening with Mozart’s tense and dramatic stand alone Adagio, we move through to Beethoven’s progressive sonata (in the manner of a fantasy) to a conclusion of two of Schubert’s final works, now recognized as mature masterpieces, deeply embedded with autobiographical emotional expression. Join us for this epic evening of great piano music to celebrate the close of our 2018 festival.

RVIPW Play Our Piano! July 18th to July 21st 2018

 

Throughout the main festival we are fortunate to have use of a wonderful Yamaha CFX 9′ Concert Grand piano. This piano is very generously supplied to us by Yamaha UK and Rimmer’s Music in Bolton.

If you’ve always dreamed of playing one of these fabulous instruments, why not book a 15 minute slot, (or multiples of slots!) and have the auditorium, and the piano, all to yourself? This opportunity would be of particular benefit to Piano Groups, instrument teachers and music students in preparation for exams or auditions – or invite your friends and family to listen in and hold your own “mini-concert”!

We make a charge of £15 for each 15 minute slot. All money raised will be used to support our Young Artists programme of lunchtime recitals.

Reserve your slot

Availability is strictly limited. To book, first contact Rebecca Weaver on info@rvipw.org.uk to enquire about availability and reserve your slot. Once it has been confirmed, use our PayPal button below within 24 hours to make your donation, and this will secure your booking.
