Breathtaking virtuosity; astonishing clarity; dazzling new insights.
Ronald Brautigam is one of the world’s most exciting players of historical keyboards. He’s famed for his exceptional performances of Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven – and for the bracing new perspectives he unveils on well-loved music, using instruments from the composers’ own times.
For his International Festival recital, Brautigam shines his searching spotlight on two later composers – Mendelssohn and Chopin. From Mendelssohn’s fiery Rondo capriccioso and sparkling Variations sérieuses to Chopin’s enormously powerful Polonaise-Fantasy, this is a recital to stimulate, captivate, and offer arrestingly fresh visions.
