Poet, pioneer, perfectionist: every recital from renowned Polish pianist Piotr Anderszewski is an unforgettable event, providing commanding new insights and even perhaps challenging your very relationship with music.
He makes a welcome return to the International Festival with one of the greatest, grandest monuments of the piano repertoire: Beethoven’s Diabelli Variations. Taking a seemingly innocuous theme as its starting point, Beethoven’s mighty creation takes you on a gripping emotional journey through humour, drama, beauty and thrilling virtuosity – a visionary work of endlessly electrifying invention.
Beforehand, Anderszewski brings together a collection of bracing keyboard music by Bach: three captivating preludes and fugues from The Well-Tempered Clavier, and the expansive explorations of the Third English Suite.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Edinburgh International Festival: Piotr Anderszewski are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
