  • Alessio Bax piano

Alessio Bax, described by The New Yorker as ‘perhaps the most elegant of today’s young pianists’, places Skryabin’s Piano Sonata No. 3 at the heart of his lunchtime recital.

He frames the Russian composer’s dramatic vision of ‘States of the Soul’ with Schubert’s majestic Piano Sonata in A minor D784 and Ravel’s virtuoso transcription for solo piano of La valse.
