JAMES LISNEY piano
Four Impromptus D 935
We are delighted to welcome James Lisney to Weymouth for the first time, to perform Impromptus by Schubert and Liszt transcriptions of Schubert songs, including the much-loved Ständchen.
“I have nothing but praise for James Lisney’s piano playing; he combines velvet touch and wide range of colour with complete understanding of phrasing and dynamic shading. This is someone who can really give the mechanical box of wires and wood a singing soul.” The Telegraph
We are planning our new season of concerts, which will commence in September 2021, with a special focus on the piano – as both a solo instrument and also its important role in chamber music. We look forward to presenting a wide range of performers, from solo pianists and other instrumentalists, to chamber ensembles and a piano 4-hand duo. All being well, we will revert to our usual practice of a single concert of 1 hour from 1pm.
