An auspicious end to the classical series as we welcome Italian pianist Beatrice Rana for an exclusive UK recital. Silver medallist of the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, Gramophone magazine’s 2017 Young Artist of the Year, and nominated for a Classic Brit Award in 2018, she is gaining plaudits on the international scene from critics and audiences alike. Her release of Bach’s Goldberg Variations was critically acclaimed, and she begins her Turner Sims recital with music by the composer, his Italian Concerto. Schumann’s heartfelt work, written during an enforced period of separation from his future wife Clara, is followed by Stravinsky’s vivid and vibrant depiction of a Russian Shrovetide Fair.
She is a compelling storyteller: her playing has all the sustained force and perfectly weighted brilliance you could want, but has a glint in its eye, too. The Guardian
