LUNCHTIME RECITALS at 1 pm on Mondays

Admission £10 on the door

As many of you will know, the Ukrainian pianist Anna Fedorova was to have given a recital on 4th July. As I explained at the recital on 6th June, she has withdrawn because she is involved in a tour of Europe and the US by the Ukrainian Freedom Orchestra. They are performing at the BBC Proms on Sunday, 31st July at 11.00 am, when Anna Fedorova will play Chopin's Piano Concerto No.2.

 

We are very fortunate that Sofya Gulyak will give the recital on 4th July. Sofya won the Leeds International Piano Competition in 2009, since then she has performed in many parts of the world. Her programme is:

  • Clara Schumann - Variations on a Theme by Robert Schumann op.20

  • Mendelssohn - Rondo-capriccioso op.14

  • Rachmaninov - Five Morceaux de Fantasie  op.3:  Elegie, Prelude, Melody, Polichinelle, Serenade

  • Mussorgsky - 'Pictures at an Exhibition'

(Anna Fedorova had planned to perform 'Pictures at an Exhibition')

 

The cost of entry is £10, payable at the door.

 

The final concert of the 2021/2022 season will be given on Monday, 18th July (at 1 pm) by the Richard Wetherall Trio. This is a jazz concert, and usually attracts a good audience. We welcome them back after an absence of three years.

 

The first concert of the 2022/2023 season will take place on Monday, 3rd October 2022 at 1 pm. More details will be announced in due course.

 

Harrogate International Festivals will be putting on four recitals at the Wesley Centre in July. More details can be found on the HIF website.  https://harrogateinternationalfestivals.com/harrogate-music-festival/
