Thu 11 Oct, SJE Arts at St John the Evangelist Church
SJE Arts 6th International Piano Series
Winner of the prestigious 2017 International Ernest von Siemens Music Prize in recognition of a life devoted to the service of music, Pierre-Laurent Aimard performs each season with the world’s most significant orchestras and conductors.
He has been involved in ground-breaking residencies in New York, Vienna and Paris, served for 7 years as Artistic Director of the Aldeburgh Festival and is currently Artist-in-Residence at London’s Southbank Centre. We are delighted to have him open our 2018-2019 Piano Series.
Pierre-Laurent Aimard will perform the Goldberg Variations, Bach’s keyboard masterpiece of thirty variations on a main theme, exploring a variety of forms and moving towards a final, joyous quodlibet. The composer’s own epithet ‘For Music Lovers, to Refresh their Spirits’ seems entirely appropriate.
