Six years after his last visit to Rosanna, Antony Peebles returns to display his outstanding pianistic skills to the Arden Crescent audience once more.
Since winning the BBC Piano Competition in 1971, and in the following year the Debussy Competition in France, Antony has maintained a very busy performing career, the main feature being the remarkable amount of overseas touring it has entailed. He has performed in, astonishingly, over 130 different countries.
At home in the UK, Antony has played as concerto soloist with orchestras too numerous to name. He has recorded six CDs for Meridian Records: Ravel piano music, Liszt operatic fantasias, and four CDs of songs transcribed for solo piano by Liszt, (all 55 of the Schubert songs, all twelve of the Schumann songs and all nine of the Mendelssohn songs transcribed by Liszt).
Antony Peebles, whose clear and informative introductions are greatly appreciated, will once more draw on his impressive repertoire to present a selection of favourite compositions, as follows:
Beethoven – Pathetique Sonata, Ravel – Une Barque sur l’Ocean, Chopin – Scherzo no 2 in B flat minor, Schumann – Fantasy in C op 17, Balakirev –Islamay.
We look forward to another exciting afternoon of piano music. You may book now by ringing 9457 2595.
