Programme Note

The Principal Artists of this year's Hertfordshire Festival of Music, Charles Owen and Katya Apekisheva, draw the 2024 Festival to a fabulous close with a programme that epitomises the Festival’s exploration of relatedness, cooperation, contrast and unity.

With the compelling energy and interplay of two pianos, this renowned duo plays Brahms’ Variations on a Theme by Haydn, a work of sharply drawn character variation and an ever-shifting array of moods and textures. This is followed by the heartfelt intimacy of Jonathan Dove’s Between Friends, and the passionate depths of Rachmaninoff’s Suite No. 2 for Two Pianos.
‘Charles Owen and Katya Apekisheva are superb pianists in their own right – his Bach is scintillating; her Schubert has profound authority – and as a duo they make more than the sum of their parts; their Mozart and Brahms series helped put Kings Place on the chamber-music map.’ The Independent
