Music Nairn Press Release William Howard (piano) Saturday 29th October 2016 7.30pm Nairn Community and Arts Centre

William Howard, who plays for Music Nairn on Saturday 29th October, is one of Britain’s leading pianists, enjoying a career that has taken him to over 40 different countries. He performs solo recitals, concertos, makes guest appearances with chamber ensembles and instrumentalists, and regularly tours with the Schubert Ensemble of London, Britain’s leading group for piano and

His solo career has taken him to many of Britain’s most important festivals, having performed many times in the Wigmore Hall and South Bank in London, and he broadcasts regularly for BBC Radio 3.

He recently launched his ‘Love Songs’ project, with release of a CD and a composing competition. In association with this theme, his recital programme for Saturday is unashamedly lyrical, with Liszt piano transcriptions of Mendelssohn, Schumann and Schubert songs bookended by a Mendelssohn Capriccio, and Chopin’s well loved Sonata 3 in B minor.

Winning pieces by David Matthews and Cheryl Hoad from the competition complete an unusual and most appealing programme. 

The concert starts at 7.30pm with tickets on sale from Nairn Community and Arts Centre in advance or on the night.

I reckon this project will quickly be shelved. Post the effects of pre let alone post Brexit the UK isn't going to have the money to follow though on this. Years of court battles before the first spade goes in plus fisticuffs from political parties

Neve Scottish politicians applauding the proposed Heathrow extension which if it does go ahead will mean that Scotland will once again fund a major project in the South East of England with questionable return

How about trying to get more slots used at Prestwick airport?
