Change of Programme
The programme for this concert has changed from previously advertised and will now be as listed below


  • Jonathan Plowright piano

Currently mid-way through recording what has been described by Gramophone magazine as a ‘benchmark Brahms survey’, the highly acclaimed British pianist Jonathan Plowright, ‘a true and moving poet of the keyboard’, performs Brahms’s meltingly beautiful Ballades.

Liszt’s elegy to young lives and dreams destroyed by the bloody suppression of the Hungarian revolution of 1848 is in stark contrast to Busoni’s brilliant Bach transcriptions. Schumann’s collection of miniature portraits in sound, Carnaval, inspired by a turbulent and short-lived love affair, complete the programme.

        • Chorale Prelude 'Nun komm der Heiden Heiland' BWV659 (arr. Ferruccio Busoni)
