Programme Note

A first vist to Chester Celebrity Concerts for Alessandro Taverna who will give a recital of piano solos by Ravel, Chopin and Gershwin.

Hailed by the British music critics, Alessandro Taverna’s “music making stimulates the senses as does a visit to his native Venice”, and gives “rise to a feeling of wonderment”. When he reached the final and performed Chopin’s First Piano Concerto at the 2009 Leeds International Piano Competition The Independent said “the world was suddenly suffused with grave beauty: flawless minutes of poetry”. Since then, Alessandro Taverna has shown a most remarkable, constant development that makes him one of the most interesting, musical pianists of his generation, being in worldwide demand.
