About The Music

Co-Artistic Director and pianist Maria Raspopova performs in the most intimate of chamber music settings: as solo pianist.

In this program she displays her fine ability to play technically demanding works as well as draw out subtle shadings of colour from the piano. Maria’s playing has been praised for its “beautiful reading, finely crafted for maximum emotional impact,” and she has been hailed as “a pianist who could play anything”.

This finely balanced program of music includes Debussy’s deeply intimate and lyrical Claire De Lune and Rachmaninoff’s piano Prelude in G minor, Op.23, No.5. The program also includes Chopin’s epic and dramatic Ballade in G minor, the virtuosic Etude de Paganini by Franz Liszt contrasted by Erik Satie’s delightful Trois Gymnopédies.
