English Suite No.5 in E minor, BWV. 810
Variations on a Theme of Corelli, Op.42
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.
