Serial international prizewinner Sergei Babayan returns to the festival with a veritable feast of music by the composer for whom the piano was so much more than an instrument. Chopin didn’t expand the piano’s vocabulary, he gave it a whole new language – countering the thundering virtuosity of Liszt with a new, transcendental poise. Babayan unlocks the hypnotic magic of Chopin’s music with ‘demonstration quality’ (Diapason), and here offers a heady yet reflective selection of mazurkas, waltzes, polonaises and impromptus in the spiritual surroundings of the Church of St John the Evangelist.

The concert is scheduled to end at approximately 10.15 pm.

Tickets: £25 £20 £15 £10
