Jin Ju has been one of our favourites for many years, and it’s a surprise to find that it is already ten years since her prize-winning performances at the Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow. She now travels the world, and has performed in the Vatican for the Pope, and in the Forbidden City, as well as most of the world’s major concert halls. Beethoven’s Sonata evokes moods familiar from his Pastoral Symphony while Debussy’s Images paint more abstract pictures. A mouth-watering selection of Chopin favourites from the intimacy of two of his night musings to the exuberance of his First Ballade promise an evening to savour. There will be a free pre-concert talk at 6.45 pm for half an hour.
