International Festival artist in residence Pierre-Laurent Aimard is one of today’s most pioneering musicians – as well as a global giant of the piano, renowned for his revelatory insights and his exhilarating virtuosity.
The exquisite, veiled beauty of three of Chopin’s Nocturnes contrast with the sparkling brilliance of three of Messiaen’s joyful bird portraits – of the golden oriole, woodlark and greater short-toed lark. Alongside a selection of Debussy’s scintillating Etudes, and sensual music by Scriabin, is the extraordinary mystical spirituality of Russianborn Nikolai Obouhow.
