Friday 2 February 2018: Margaret Fingerhut (piano recital)

The distinguished pianist, Margaret Fingerhut, brings another wide-ranging programme to St. Luke’s.  She opens with a sparkling and witty Haydn sonata, followed by one of Chopin’s most beautiful Nocturnes and his glorious Third Ballade.  The recital also features John Ireland’s “London Pieces” which vividly conjure up scenes of the big city as it was 100 years ago, while Rachmaninov’s Moments Musicaux take us into the heart of the dark melancholy and passion that is the Russian soul. A highlight of the programme will be the UK premiere of “Aubade”, an evocative new work by Peter Copley which was commissioned by Margaret. This concert is supported by the John Ireland Charitable Trust. Includes pre-concert talk at 7pm.
