Programme Note

James Lisney’s acclaimed …petits concerts return with a series of recitals raising money for a variety of charities.  The title is taken from the annual series of recitals given by Charles-Valentin Alkan at the Erard showroom in Paris during the 1870s.

All proceeds are going to The Amber Trust, a charity which provides musical opportunities for blind and partially sighted children, and children with more complex needs, via its Music Awards and Music Services.  


Doors/champagne reception: 6.30pm

Concert: 7.30pm

Ticket price includes complimentary glass of champagne (or soft drink alternative) and Woodhouse Editions CD


"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
