Celebrated Scottish pianist Alasdair Beatson, known for his intelligent, sensitive playing as well as for his inquisitive mind and carefully considered concert programmes, gives us a recital in which he explores different facets of Viennese-inspired music. From the easygoing Schubert Valses to the complex Schönberg early atonal experiments, from the well known Schumann Faschingsschwank aus Wien to the true rarity that is Korngold’s 3rd piano Sonata, this programme also includes a work that considers Vienna from the eyes of an outsider - the French Maurice Ravel - whose Valses Nobles et Sentimentales take Schubert into the twentieth century. This programme of echoes and reflections is presented by one of the most interesting pianist of his generation.

16 April 2022, 7.30pm, Clare Hall Dining Room.


Programme:
-Schubert - Valses nobles D 969
-Ravel - Valses nobles et sentimentales
-Schumann - Faschingsschwank aus Wien, op 26
-Schoenberg - 6 Kleine Klavierstücke, op 19
-Korngold - Piano Sonata No 3 in C, op 25


Tickets: £15, £10 students, £5 children.

Saturday, 11 June 2022 - 7:30pm

The Oculi Ensemble, a flexible ensemble derived from the internationally acclaimed Badke Quartet, are to play two of the great masterpieces of Austrian chamber music: Strauss’s Metamorphosen, written shortly after the second world war, is an elegy to a lost world, and one of the most moving, last works of the composer. It will be presented in the rare version for septet, and preceded by the Sextet from his last opera, Capriccio. We will then hear one of Brückner’s few non-symphonic masterpieces, his quintet, which combines the power and scope of his symphonic writing with the intimacy of chamber music.

11 June 2022, 7.30pm, Clare Hall Dining Room.


Programme:
-Strauss: Sextet from Capriccio, Metamorphosen
-Brückner: Quintet


Tickets: £15, £10 students, £5 children.

Booking will open in April.
