Summer School is just around the corner and we’re delighted to announce the recital programmes which our tutors will present.
Karl Lutchmayer opens the week on Saturday 11 August at 7.45pm with a fascinating mix – Alkan’s Etude pour la main gauche seule Op 76 No 1 (Fantasie), Liszt’s Hungarian Rhapsody No 13, Enescu’s Piano Sonata No 3 in D Major, and Schulz-Evler’s dazzling transcription of Strauss’s Blue Danube Waltz. Unmissable!
Christine Stevenson follows on Sunday 12 August with a concert featuring ‘The Romantic Piano’, playing Schumann’s well-loved Romance Op 28 No 2 followed by Chopin’s sparkling Four Scherzi.
After last year’s memorable talk about the work, this year Graham Fitch will perform Bach’s monumental Goldberg Variations on Monday 13 August.
And the Summer School welcomes David Owen Norris on Tuesday 14 August, who, in a stirring programme, will play his own arrangements of The Frost Scene from King Arthur by Henry Purcell and Sir William Walton’s Prelude & Fugue : The Spitfire, Francis Poulenc’s Les soirées de Nazelles, and Sir Edward Elgar’s Concert Allegro.
The concerts, all at 7.45, are a bargain at £10 each, £8 concession, and free for accompanied children. They take place in the Black Box Theatre in the Performance Hub, University of Wolverhampton, Walsall Campus. Tickets will be available via Eventbrite – watch this space for a link in due course – or at the door. There’s something for everyone; do join us. Reserve the dates now!
