One of our favourite visitors, Peter Donohoe returns for a solo recital to open this year’s Piano Week, with a programme of music to show the full range of his mastery at the keyboard. Mozart’s sparkling Sonata leads the way, followed by some favourite late Schubert. Scriabin’s dark drama and sense of upheaval characterise the 6th Sonata, one of his greatest works, and the evening ends with Rachmaninov’s Preludes, by turns melancholy, romantic and joyful, and always intensely so.
Mozart – Sonata in F (K 332)
Schubert – Four Impromptus (D 935)
Scriabin – Sonata No 6
Rachmaninov – Preludes Op 32
Pre-concert talk at 6.30pm (free to ticket holders)
