Bösendorfer Piano Concerts
The Hinchingbrooke Bösendorfer Piano Concerts 2013– 2014
Our seventh season of concerts offers yet more musical feasts with five star-studded concerts using the Bösendorfer concert grand piano donated to the school by former pupils in memory of Kenneth Brown.
Friday October 25th 2013: Zsolt-Tihamér Visontay, violin; Jamie Walton, cello; Katya Apekisheva, piano.
We are extremely fortunate to be able to welcome three outstandingly fine, internationally prominent performers to Hinchingbrooke. Each a major talent dominating his or her own particular field, they will collaborate today to present a programme including piano trios by Ravel, Mendelssohn and others.
Friday November 29th 2013: Roy Howat, piano; Helen Habershon, clarinet; Jillian Skerry, piano.
Roy is renowned worldwide as a talented and exceptionally visionary scholar, broadcaster and solo pianist. Today he makes a very welcome return visit. Helen enjoys an international career with solo, orchestral, radio and TV performances and is known for her fine and sensitive playing. They will be joined by Jillian, an experienced and successful performer on the international stage and co-founder/artistic director of this series. Their programme will include music by Debussy, Chabrier, Joseph Horovitz and more.
Friday January 24th 2014: Caroline Dale, cello; Paul Turner, piano.
Caroline won the string section of the BBC 'Young Musician of the Year' competition at the age of thirteen making her Queen Elizabeth Hall debut only two years later; recordings, recitals and concerto performances with leading international orchestras have followed. Paul is highly valued as ensemble partner by eminent musicians both here and abroad for his fine pianism and 'sensitive and alert' accompaniments. Their programme will include works by Beethoven and Brahms.
Friday February 28th 2014: Ashley Wass, piano.
As one of the leading British pianists of today, Ashley is increasingly in demand on the international circuit. His recital here in 2011 was memorable for its vision, maturity and exceptional sensitivity. He returns to offer a programme to include music by Bach, Beethoven, Busoni, Berg, Franck and Barber.
Friday March 28th 2014: Emma Halnan, flute; Daniel King-Smith, piano.
Clearly a young artist with a bright future, Emma won the Woodwind section of the BBC 'Young Musician' competition in 2010.
