At just 20, British pianist George Harliono is already an experienced recitalist, having made his debut when he was just nine years old. The opening of his recital is similarly youthful, the young Wilhelm Kempff’s transcription of the Siciliano from a Bach Flute Sonata producing a miniature of restrained beauty and lilting rhythms. Composed when he was just 21, Prokofiev’s second Sonata, is full of youthful energy and a tireless force of life, mixed with dreamy lyricism and infectious laughter. Brahms’s Intermezzo comes from the end of his life and is one of his best-loved works, full of tender feelings and passionate memories, while Ravel’s depiction of a boat on the ocean from his Miroirs suite is one of the most evocative put to music, using virtually the entire range of keyboard colours. This concert ends with a virtuosic showpiece by Liszt, inspired by a tour he made to Spain and the melodies he heard there, including a set of spectacular variations on the famous La Folia theme.

Admission price includes tea, coffee and cake.
