Paul Turner – piano
Sunday 10th September 2023
Arts Centre @ 3.00pm
Our opening concert introduces us to a broad base of styles and periods in French music, ranging from the Baroque (Leclair), through Romantic (Massenet and César Franck) and Impressionist (Debussy), to the Twentieth Century with Lili Boulanger. Moods range from crystal clarity and formality, through ethereal sounds and humour, to full-blown drama. We’re particularly lucky to have SRS favourite Miranda Dale play for us in her busy schedule (she will have played at the Proms a few days before!), bringing her usual warmth and approachability to the proceedings.
"Miranda Dale… radiantly ecstatic” (Andrew Clements). “Miranda Dale…played with absolute conviction, and her enthusiasm… enhanced the feelings of joy and elation” (Chris Linford – Beethoven violin concerto).
