One of the leading pianists of his generation, John Lill returns to the Oxford Piano Festival to present a compelling recital at the Holywell Music Room. Lill showcases essentially all the personal and musical characteristics of the young Schumann in Carnaval, before performing his beloved Kinderszenen, as well as Brahms’ vibrant Two Rhapsodies, and Variations and Fugue on a Theme of Handel.
The concert is scheduled to end at approximately 10.15 pm.
