Atsuko Kawakami – 2nd February 2019

Our star performer on this occasion will be the brilliant Japanese pianist Atsuko Kawakami, in her first Maxability solo performance, and her selection of timeless gems provides us with one of our most memorable recital programmes ever!

The programme details are as follows:

  1. Sonata in C Major by Galuppi, a contemporary of Scarlatti.
  2. Beethoven’s Sonata in F Minor, Op.57 (‘Appassionata’) – one of his most profound keyboard masterpieces.
  3. Granados’ Op. 11 Suite, ‘Goyescas’, usually considered the composer’s crowning creation, inspired by the paintings of Goya. This haunting, evocative piece, No 4 in the suite, is sub-titled ‘The Maiden and the Nightingale’.
  4. Frederic Chopin: Polonaise in C Sharp Minor, Op.26 No.1; Mazurka in A Minor, Op. 17 No.4; and Atsuko will conclude her recital with his breathtaking 4th Ballade in F minor Op. 52.

With less than two weeks to go, there are now only EIGHT places still available at this concert. Please book very soon if you would like to attend.
