Alessandro Taverna                             12th Feb 2018 at the Bear Club Map

This Italian pianist, an ear-catching finalist in the 2009 Leeds International Piano Competition, presents a dazzling recital of music from Eastern Europe. From the lyrical Polish romanticism of Chopin’s Ballades, the bravura sweep of the Rachmaninov second sonata and through to the scintillating colours of Stravinsky’s Pétrouchka this is a virtuoso programme demanding the utmost skill. This will surely be an unforgettable evening!

“Finally he gave us Stravinsky’s Trois Mouvements de Pétrouchka: dazzlingly done, yet mining the music’s emotional depths. His encores brought the already enraptured audience to its feet.”
