South African pianist Mark Nixon joins forces with fellow faculty members Madalina Rusu and Grace Yeo in a programme of works by Bach, Mozart and Ravel. The two contrasting duet transcriptions of movements from Bach’s cantatas open tonight’s recital.

Internationally acclaimed Romanian pianist Madalina Rusu presents a romantic programme, opening with a composition by one of her compatriots, George Enescu. A lyrical and intimate rendition of Romanian folk music, Pavane, introduces the intoxicating sound of the Nai (Romanian pan flute) mixed with a clear French influence. Followed by the charming and tender Schumann’s Arabesque, Madalina offers the audience one of Liszt's most loved and passionate piano works Sonetto 104 based on Petrarca's sonnet in which the poet declares his…

Romanian concert pianist Madalina Rusu opens the second week of the festival with Schubert's Four Impromptus D899. The theme of the first piece is presented straight away as a solo plaintive voice in a march like rhythm. The second work of the cycle is one of Schubert's most famous works, combining virtuosity and drama, from the lyrical and floating opening theme to a contrasting Hungarian Gypsy Dance. The fourth and final Impromptu forms a wonderful conclusion of the set, starting…

Ron’s Toyes inspired by the Suffolk-based toymaker Ron Fuller, is a set of miniatures which sparkles with wit, vivacity and childlike joy. This is juxtaposed with the next piece in the programme, Mozart’s variations on the melody now famously known as Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, which takes the listener through a series of contrasting miniatures. Both works capture the essence of childhood…

This is followed by Chopin's Sonata in B flat minor, a work considered by many as one of the greatest sonatas in the entire piano literature. Written in 1839 while Chopin was living in George Sand’s manor house in Nohant, the work epitomises his bel canto style of piano writing, using complex harmony and a true display of brilliant pianistic virtuosity.

The beautiful Nocturne in B flat minor follows, before the titanic work of the evening, the complete 24 Preludes. Music critic Henry Finck (1854 – 1926) once wrote that ’if all piano music in the world were to be destroyed, excepting one collection, my vote should be cast for Chopin's Preludes’.

Japanese concert pianist Maiko Mori opens her recital with Beethoven’s Pathétique Sonata, written in 1798, at a time when Beethoven was becoming gradually aware of his encroaching deafness and yet was leading a relatively contented domestic life. Unlike most of the nicknames given to Beethoven’s works, Pathétique is believed to have been picked by the composer himself to convey the romantic and even sorrowful mood of the sonata. This is followed by British composer Graham Fitkin’s Frank and Fervent, a…

Italian concert pianist and composer Roberto Russo presents an unusual recital entitled Keyboard Synapses. Although the programme is mainly based around the music of Domenico Scarlatti, Roberto combines eight of his keyboard sonatas with the same number of piano pieces written by various composers of the 20th and 21st century. All of the paired compositions not only share a close tonal relationship, but there are many other reasons supporting their juxtapositions: melodic or rhythmical affinities and sometimes a complete contrast…
