Music Nairn are honoured to host world class French pianist Pascal Rogé on Sunday 24rd January at Nairn Community and Arts Centre. He exemplifies the finest in French pianism, and by the age of 17 had won several international piano competitions and become an exclusive Decca recording artist.
Pascal has performed in almost every major concert hall in the world, with every major orchestra across the globe and has collaborated with the most distinguished conductors in recent history.
His playing of Poulenc, Satie, Fauré, Debussy, Saint-Saëns and especially Ravel, is characterized by its elegance, beauty and stylistically perfect phrasing, and Sunday’s beautiful programme highlights pieces by four of these well loved composers.
Following on from the dreamy Satie ‘Gymnopédies’ which open the concert, the Ravel ‘Sonatine’ and Poulenc’s ‘Les Soirées de Nazelles’, (a series of eleven lyrical improvisatory pieces), continue the flow of French impressionism at its finest. More of Satie’s quirky and fascinating miniatures lead on to what will be a spellbinding finale – Book 1 of Debussy’s stunning Preludes including well known favourites ‘The Girl with the Flaxen Hair’ and ‘The Sunken Cathedral’.
This is a concert not be missed, and tickets are available in advance and on the night from Nairn Community Centre, or on line at www.musicnairn.org.uk
