Classical performance

First published in News by

AWARD-WINNING Russian pianist Nikolai Demidenko will be performing at Yeovil's Octagon Theatre on Friday, March 28.

A student of the Moscow Gnessin School, the classical musician has given recitals throughout the UK, Europe and Russia and has appeared as a soloist with major orchestras worldwide.

Demidenko is a noted champion of the works of neglected composers including Clementi, von Weber and Medtner, as well as more unfamiliar works of well-known composers such as Mozart, Scarlatti and Schubert.

He was a medallist at the 1976 Montreal International Piano Competition and the 1978 Tchaikovsky International Competition and in 1992 won a Gramophone Award in the concerto category for his recording of the Medtner Piano Concertos No. 2 and 3.

Demidenko, who holds a visiting professorship at the University of Surrey, will be performing a selection of compositions for audiences at the Octagon, including Chopin's Sonata No. 2 and Barcarolle in G minor.

The concert starts at 7.30pm.

Tickets are £20 full price, £18 for concessions and can be purchased by calling the box office on 01935-422884.
