The Art of the Piano

14 June, 7pm

Prices from £10.00

Marianne Bailey - Speaker
Bobby Chen - Piano

A rare opportunity to glean from piano tuner and technician Marianne Bailey some fascinating insights about the inner workings of a piano, and some of the daily challenges she faces in setting up instruments for a concert performance.

There’ll be a short Q&A before brilliant Malaysian pianist Bobby Chen takes to the stage in the second half with a dynamic programme finely balanced between contemporary and classical works, including a UK première by renowned Malaysian composer Taljuddin, as well as a 1992 work by Scottish composer John McLeod. Haydn’s C major Sonata will refresh the aural palette, followed by Busoni’s lavishly-textured arrangement of Bach’s Chaconne for solo violin.  Almost as an afterthought, Schumann’s Widmung will inevitably tug at the heart-strings. Unmissable!
