Lancaster Arts welcomes Leeds International Piano Competition winner of 2021, Alim Beisembayev to the Great Hall for the very first time with this dramatic concert programme.
Alim is fascinated by the exploration of colours in romantic music throughout its history and this French and Russian programme explores colour and storytelling through the piano. The deep darkness of Ravel’s fleeting ‘Gaspard de la nuit’ and the dramatic richness of Rachmaninov’s Sonata prove the works to be pinnacles of 20th century piano literature.
Announced as a BBC New Generation Artist for 2023–25, Alim made his BBC Proms debut in 2023, performing Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No. 2 with the Sinfonia of London. In 2022, Warner Classics released Alim’s critically-acclaimed debut album: Liszt Transcendental Études, featuring all twelve of the composer's etudes.
“a performance of the Rachmaninov Piano Concerto no. 2 of the kind I thought we could hear only in our dreams"
