Riyad came to play for us some years ago, but we are delighted to welcome back this Syrian pianist whose individual style has just won him the coveted Liszt competition in Budapest. Not only will he play the Lizst Paganini Etude No.6, but also Beethoven’s Sonata in E flat major, Op.27, no.1, and some Russian music too, so it promises to be an exciting evening.

Italian by birth, Francesca is in her first year of postgraduate studies at the Royal Academy of Music. She is a promising pianist who will bring her passionate style to Schubert’s Drei Klavierstücke and Beethoven’s Sonata in A flat major, Op.110.

Viktor is an old friend of Farley, having played at one of the first festivals. This Serbian pianist is a musician of exceptional charm and technical brilliance. His return visit offers a chance to see just how much this artist has matured recently in a programme that includes Chopin’s magnificent Ballades and Liszt’s Stunning 6th Hungarian Rhapsody.

The International Young Soloists Trio is one of the projects of the inventive Hungarian pianist Alexandra Balog. The group is a versatile ensemble which can be expanded, but in this concert, Alexandra is joined by the Korean Violinist Jane Kim and the Hungarian Cellist Réka Adorjáni in an attractive programme comprising Beethoven’s magnificent Appassionata Sonata, Chopin’s Polonaise for Cello and Piano and Brahms’s beautiful first piano trio.
