Piano Recital by Martin Roscoe

Come and hear the Artistic Director of Ribble Valley International Piano Week, Martin Roscoe, for an evening of popular fantasies by the great composers, and with a wide range of moods and characters. Mozart’s short Fantasy in D minor is one of his most popular piano pieces, by turns wistful, dramatic and light-hearted.  Schumann’s Kreisleriana, “8 Fantasias” has similar contrasts – the music is either frenetic and passionate or contemplative and serene. Beethoven’s Sonata quasi una fantasia has four very contrasting movements played continuously, and Brahms’ Op 116 Fantasies, written towards the end of his life are intimate and economical. Finally Chopin’s F minor fantasy is a fifteen minute story of turbulence contrasted with moments of complete calm.  Details of RVIPW 2014, which will run from Wednesday 16th July to Saturday 19th July will be available.
