With three Romantic masterpieces performed by a Russian master, this concert is a treat for anyone who loves the piano.

Alexander Melnikov is one of the world’s most admired pianists, the inheritor of the full richness of the Russian piano tradition. The Guardian rated him 'the interpreter of choice for [Shostakovich’s] piano work,' and his countless accolades include awards from Gramophone and BBC Music Magazine, the Diapason d’Or and many others. His energy and virtuosity illuminate every piece he touches.

Experience the many sides of Melnikov’s virtuosity in this wonderfully expansive program with his masterful command of Brahms’ lyricism and Schubert’s dizzying architecture. Melnikov impresses in both before diving headlong into Debussy’s Impressionistic masterpieces – all highly expressive and rich with colour and atmosphere.

Take in every wonderful movement, and Melnikov’s fabulous talent. The warm surroundings of the City Recital Hall provide the perfect space for a romantic night out.
