I love Kurtág’s writing – a chance for me here to play some of his solo piano music which I will really enjoy.
I’ve heard a lot about this fabulous venue near Gifford in East Lothian, previously owned by Gian Carlo Menotti. Really looking forward to seeing it, and to playing one of my favourite piano trios.
This is going to be an energetic concert in a wonderful venue. Each time we come back to the Bartok we discover yet more remarkable things – a truly astonishing piece. And Rite of Spring – nearly 100 years old yet as entrancing as if it was written yesterday…
This was enormous fun!
