CONVERSATIONAL CONCERTS AT THE WAREHOUSE
Sunday 13 April
3pm at The Warehouse, 13 Theed Street, Waterloo; £15
(concs £12)
This month the innovative series of Conversational
Concerts features a performance of the rarely heard
Concerto for Solo Piano by Alkan, whose legendary piano
technique even made Liszt feel uncomfortable. Chamber
music is also showcased in works by Strauss, Hindemith
and Enescu, alongside the world premiere of young
British composer, Phillip Neil Martin's Two Reflections
on Milton for solo piano. Phillip is one of five
finalists in the forthcoming prestigious Takemitsu
International Composition Competition. 
Conversational Concerts break down the barriers of
Classical Music without resorting to gimmicks.
Introducing each work in a relaxed but informative
manner, historical and musical contexts are explored,
and 'aural-signposts' suggested to add to the enjoyment
of the performance.
