Lara Melda (Piano)
Lara Melda rose to international prominence in 2010 when she won the BBC Young Musician of the Year at the age of sixteen, performing Saint-Saëns' Piano Concerto No. 2 in the final round, with Vasily Petrenko and the BBC National Orchestra of Wales in Cardiff.
Lara is renowned and highly praised for her Chopin interpretations. A performance of Chopin's 2nd Sonata prompted this review: "Unquestionably one of the most outstanding performances of the piece I've ever heard, it evoked its yearning, energy, loneliness, lyricism, fury and gutsiness with playing of stunning precision, technical adroitness and immense, perceptive feeling."
On Saturday evening Lara will be performing an all Chopin Programme beginning with a series of seven Nocturnes followed by the Barcarolle in F sharp major Op.60. After the Interval she will perform the monumental Sonata No. 3 in B minor Op. 58.
Join us for what promises to be a memorable recital.
