Patrick is a French pianist living in England, acclaimed for the originality of his concert programmes and the depth of his interpretations. While often heard performing core repertoire by composers such as Chopin and Bach, he is also a champion of less familiar works. His recent CD of music by Jean-Roger Ducasse was hailed 'a wonderful recording' by the BBC Music Magazine.
His programme tonight is a musical journey, starting with the world of landscapes and distant lands in Debussy's Estampes, passing through Java as seen through the eyes of Godowsky, returning to the Iberia of Albéniz and then finally arriving in Liszt's Venezia e Napoli, the composer's 'supplement' to the Italian volume of his Années de Pélerinage. It promises to be a fascinating evening of superlative music-making.
