- Evgeny Kissin piano
A master pianist returns with a wide-ranging programme including early works by the Russian Tikhon Khrennikov (1913-2007), a highly influential if politically controversial figure in Soviet musical life.
The Jeremy Singer Charitable Trust was created to fulfil one of Jeremy’s greatest wishes, namely to promote the education of underprivileged young persons to provide them with opportunities to better succeed in life. The Trust will work with Jeremy’s college at Oxford, Brasenose College, to provide the bursaries.
