Victor Lim – Saturday 13th July 2024, 12 noon

Our final lunchtime concert for emerging artists sees the return of South Korean-British pianist, Victor Lim, who is establishing himself as one of the most versatile and creative musicians of his generation.

In a programme that draws influence from other sources, we will be treated to; Wilhelm Kempff’s atmospheric transcription of Bach’s Siciliano, borrowed from the hauntingly exquisite flute sonata; Debussy’s Suite Bergamasque which surrounds “Clair de lune” – inspired by Paul Verlaine’s poem of the same name, with three dance-inspired movements. The title of Mizzy Mazzoli’s 2013 commission within a Brahms programme is taken from John Ashbury’s sestina ‘Farm Implements and Rutabagas in a Landscape’ and Richard Strauss’s final love duet in ‘Der Rosenkavalier’ inspired Grainger to write his Ramble. The programme closes with Ravel’s own virtuosic transcription of his symphonic ‘La Valse’ which pays tribute to Johann Strauss II.

This concert will be followed by a Masterclass at 2pm – SOLD OUT
