Ji Liu (Piano)
From Djanogly Theatre, for Lakeside Arts

Sunday 13 December, various times
Joanna MacGregor (Piano)
Three live streamed concerts from Turner Sims
Across three live streamed recitals distinguished British pianist Joanna MacGregor presents a personal selection of nine of the composer’s defining set of 32 piano sonatas. From the bold early Sonata No 3 dedicated to his teacher Haydn, to the ever-popular Moonlight, and concluding with the monumental and technically challenging final sonata, which Beethoven described as ‘not very difficult’. The day spans three decades of the composer’s life through music of great power, intimacy, and vision.

Tuesday 15 December, 7.30pm
Sam Staples (Violin) and Jonathan Ferrucci (Piano)
Musical Sigh: From Brahms to Pärt – Streamed live from Lancaster Priory
Sam and Jonathan are two exceptional chamber musicians who team up for a special recital of Arvo Pärt, Jean Sibelius and Johannes Brahms, a combination of composers not often performed live together. Catch these rising superstars while you can!
