David Christophersen - piano

Monday 6th November 2017

7:30 pm

David Christophersen plays Beethoven’s electrifying op 81 a sonata, Turina’s beautiful homage to the Baroque and to Spanish folk tradition, Robin Holloway’s haunting Scherzo and some of Ravel’s most dazzling music.

The Artistic Director of this series, David was born in Oslo, has broadcast for BBC Radio 3 and plays an unusually wide repertoire throughout the UK at London’s St john’s Smith Square, Bristol St George’s, Edinburgh’s Reid Hall, Oxford’s Holywell Music Rooom, the Woburn Abbey Festival among a few distinguished venues. He frequently programmes new music: This year, together with Vivian Choi, Derek Scurll and Dave Ellis, he premiered the award-winning Polish composer Marta Ptaszynska’s new work for two pianos and percussion Lune, Stelle and later in this season, together with pianist Marie-Noelle Kendall, he will be presenting Robin Holloway’s monumental 21st century classic for two pianos, Gilded Goldbergs. His recent tour with Prokofiev’s war sonatas was described by The Scotsman as "exactly right".
