Japanese pianist Yuki Negishi opens her recital with two pieces from Schubert's Drei Klavierstucke D. 946, brought to light by Johannes Brahms and published for the first time forty years after the composer’s death in 1828. These are followed by Reflets dans l'eau, one of the many pieces Debussy wrote about water and, in particular, light reflecting off its surface. Hommage a Rameau, a sarabande kept in the spirit of austerity and seriousness of intention, honours a memory of one of the most…

Niel Du Preez opens his programme with Ferrucio Busoni’s transcription of Bach’s choral prelude ‘Ich ruf zu dir, Herr’. Rich in art, feeling and fantasy, these compositions were designed to enable music lovers to revisit a familiar repertory through the transcriber’s art. One of the greatest and most technically challenging pieces Beethoven ever wrote, his Appassionata, follows next. After its thundery sound world, full of emotional upheavals, the South African pianist opens up new horizons with a carefully selected set of…

The Romantic spirit blossoms in this all-Chopin recital opening with his late, mature works and then, rather interestingly, taking the listeners back to the final months spent in Warsaw when the young Fryderyk was occupied with the composition of his fiendishly difficult Grande Polonaise Brillante in 1830. This retrospective journey, veering through a series of closely related keys offers us a chance to hear how the complex, mysterious harmonies and textures of the Nocturnes Op. 62 and the perfect marriage…

Artistic Director Samantha Ward joins forces with violinist Fenella Humphreys to open the second week of PIANO WEEK’s residency in Moreton Hall with Beethoven’s Spring Sonata. Published in 1801, this sunny and heartfelt piece instantly delights listeners with youthful energy and a lyrical opening melody. A mighty example of another young but more rebellious spirit follows in Brahms’ Sonata in G major Op. 78. As with all chamber music, but particularly in Brahms, this monumental and hugely demanding work pushes…

This evening’s programme is headed by one of Chopin’s best loved Waltzes, a work with youthful exuberance which encapsulates the melodic charm and glittering brilliance of his writing. The great Schubert Sonata in B flat Major stands as one of the towering achievements of the early romantic piano repertoire and of Schubert’s own output. The very last sonata that he wrote, in the final year of his short life, this work soars with beauty and profundity in equal measure. The work…

The evening of piano music for four hands opens with one of the most remarkable pieces in the entire repertoire – Schubert’s Fantasia D 940. Written in the final year of his life and not far from such masterpieces as the Winterreise and Schwanengesang song cycles or last three piano sonatas, it delves deep into the existential uneasiness of the human spirit. This emotional quivering echoes even in the very form of the composition. The four interconnected movements performed attacca,…

Romanian pianist Diana Ionescu presents this solo recital as a hommage to Dinu Lipatti (1917-1950), one of the most prominent Romanian pianists and composers of the 20th century and a true legend among musicians. With his centenary celebrated worldwide this year, audiences are given a rare opportunity of a brief encounter with the mesmerising personality of this unique artistic figure. The music of Cimarosa opens the recital in a luminous F Major key, followed by Bach's suite of dances (1722) and Mozart's…

The artistic director of the festival, Samantha Ward joins forces with British pianist Sam Armstrong in a rarely performed programme of two piano works. Inspired by the poem L'après-midi d'un faune by Stéphane Mallarmé and originally written in 1894 as a symphonic poem for orchestra, Debussy’s Prélude is considered to be the birth of modern music. While this version made its way back to literature in Thomas Mann’s The Magic Mountain as Hans Castorp’s favourite recording, the piano version has…

The programme begins with two contrasting Scarlatti Sonatas, the first emotional and expressive, the second lyrical and sprightly in turns. Brahms' Six Piano Pieces, Op 118 form the heart of the recital. Comprising four Intermezzi, a Ballade and a Romance, they all contrast in mood, but are surreptitiously linked by a three-note motive, cleverly transformed so that each one stands as an individualised jewel. Chopin's two Nocturnes, Op 27 are also linked, this time by tonality. Described by David Dubal…

1917: THE FINAL FLOWERING gathers together pieces by the émigré composers Gretchaninov, Rachmaninoff, Medtner, Stravinsky and Prokofiev. Having fled Russia before or immediately following the Russian Revolution, they were later divided in their opinions of the new regime, with varying consequences for their subsequent careers. The music chosen by Alexander Karpeyev to illustrate the ‘final flowering’, composed between 1909 and 1917, reflects this and includes rarely performed miniatures by Gretchaninov, Prokofiev, Rachmaninoff as well as Stravinsky’s piano arrangement of the…

Artistic Director Samantha Ward opens PIANO WEEK's residency in Beijing with Beethoven's 6 Bagatelles, written late in his career and dedicated to his brother Johann van Beethoven.  Beethoven considered these works some of his best writing, and wished for each movement, each "character piece" as a Bagatelle is known, to be played in succession, as one complete work rather than seperate pieces. The 6 pieces are filled with emotion, highs and lows, and showcase the incredible skill of the composer. Another…

The recital opens with Ferrucio Busoni’s transcription of the famous choral prelude of Johann Sebastian Bach, followed by a selection of Debussy's Preludes; workings of a master of colour and expression, light and darkness, harmony and melody, texture and rhythm. A picture of a successful virtuoso and composer who strove after formal clarity emerges in the final piece - Liszt's B minor Ballade written between…

Japanese pianist Yuki Negishi opens her recital with Debussy's Children's Corner, dedicated to his daughter Claude-Emma who was three years old at the time. The pieces are not intended to be played by children; rather they are meant to be evocative of childhood and some of the toys in Claude-Emma's collection. This is followed by two pieces from Schubert's Drei Klavierstucke D.946, brought to light by Johannes Brahms and published for the first time forty years after the composer's death.…
