Piano Season with BBC Radio 3

Classical music-lovers are in for a treat over these coming six weeks, as BBC Radio 3’s Piano Season has just begun – and there are lots of very exciting events taking place around the UK and over the airwaves in the very near future.

It all kicked off with the final of the Leeds International Piano Competition on September 14th and 15th (if you missed it, catch the performances again on BBC iPlayer), and there’s an awful lot going on today (September 17th), with Peter Donohoe’s 50 Great Pianists and Donald Macleod’s Composer of the Week both getting underway.

The A-Z of Piano on In Tune also starts today at 17:30, with podcasts available for download from the Radio 3 website, and you can also hear a series of piano recitals from venues around the country over the next six weeks. Sunwook Kim is the first pianist to feature, playing a programme of Beethoven and Schubert in Manchester today at 19:30.

But that’s not all – we here at the Two Moors Festival have got involved with Piano Season this year and are delighted to be hosting a recital with pianists Ashley Wass and Huw Watkins at St John the Baptist Church in the market town of Hatherleigh in Devon on October 15th as part of the series. These two brilliant musicians will be playing Robin Holloway’s The Gilded Goldbergs, A re-composition for two pianos after JS Bach – and it’s an event not to be missed! We hope to see you there!
