Gently echoing themes examined by Gillian Keith and Simon Lepper in an earlier festival concert, the stellar British pianist presents a programme recently performed at London’s Wigmore Hall - a wonderfully varied programme of music inspired by nature, incorporating the great centres of musical excellence from the 18th through to the early 20th century: from Beethoven in Vienna, Schumann in Dresden, the travels of the virtuoso Liszt to Switzerland in his ‘Years of Pilgrimage’, Rachmaninov in Moscow and Ravel and Debussy in Paris.
