Friday 3rd February: Around the World in 88 Piano Keys (Margaret Fingerhut: Piano)

Join me as I travel across the pianistic globe in the company of Grieg, Liszt, Albeniz, Bortkiewicz, Bartók and others. There will be a huge variety of different moods – from a powerful depiction of the mountain landscape in Ukraine to a humorous rush-hour romp in Hong Kong – with colourful pieces from Norway, Switzerland, Spain, Romania, Middle East, USA, Australia and Mexico along the way.”
