Change of Programme
The programme for this concert has changed from previously advertised and will now be as listed below.
- Saleem Ashkar piano
Saleem Ashkar’s interpretations of the core German repertoire have won critical plaudits and the admiration of piano connoisseurs, not least for their sense of risk allied to clear-sighted understanding of form and phrasing.
His all-Beethoven programme moves from the fecund invention of the early Op. 10 No. 2 to the revolutionary fire of the ‘Appassionata’ sonata.

- Piano Sonata No. 26 in E flat major Op. 81a 'Les Adieux'
