Scriabin and other Russians…

 

Another exciting project will be the performance of Scriabin’s Piano Concerto in F sharp minor op.20 on December 1st 2014 at 8 pm at Holy Trinity in Leeds. This concert will be part of a short Festival promoted by Arts@Trinity and Leeds College of Music celebrating great Russian Music. I look forward to collaborating with the conductor James Ham and the Elmet Sinfonietta on this occasion and to  performing this beautiful master piece. Other works on the programme will be The Night on the bare Mountain by Mussorgsky and Tchaikovsky’s wonderful 4th Symphony. For tickets please contact LCoM box office. It would be great to see you there…

More Piano Duet…

 

In collaboration with pianist and fellow lecturer at Leeds College of Music, Nico de Villiers I am going to play two concerts promoted by the Lewisham Choral Society. On November 15th we will be playing the piano parts in the performance of Rossini’s Petite Messe Solennelle alongside Variations on a theme by Paganini for 2 pianos by Lutoslawski. The concert will commence at 7.30 pm and will be held at Goldsmiths College, Great Hall.

The second of these concerts will take place on July 4th 2015 where we will be performing Bartok’s Sonata for two pianos and percussion and the 2 piano version of Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana. Details to follow nearer the time.

Educational Work

 

I look forward to giving recitals and workshops in two of England’s most prestigious independent schools.

On October 30th I will join Simon Desbrulais and Deborah Pritchard for a recital at Eton College. The programme will feature Pritchard’s “Seven Halts on the Somme” for trumpet and piano as well as works by Bruch and Ligeti.

The other event will take place on November 3rd: Together with my friend and colleague Eleanor Hodgkinson I will be giving a workshop on piano duo and piano duet repertoire at Warwick School. On the same day we will also be giving a lunch time recital including works by Schubert, Rachmaninoff and Dvorak.
