FINDING THE LINKS

Lecture/Recital by pianist Andrew Zolinsky

In this Lecture/Recital, Andrew Zolinsky will talk about and play a wide range of exciting contemporary piano music. He will play some extracts to illustrate certain points, and some complete works. He will talk about how so much of this music has links with music from the past, from the core piano repertoire, and therefore how we can make interesting recital programmes by bringing together past and present.
