Sunday 23 September 3.00 p.m. Malvern born violinist Eleanor Percy, along with Russian pianist, Irina Lyakhovskaya, present an afternoon of superb music.
Their work has been broadcast on BBC television and radio and featured on Classic FM. They have recorded works by Prokofiev and Brahms for the IMLab label and the complete Mozart Sonatas for the legendary Melodiya label. Eleanor says “being a violinist from Malvern, I couldn’t resist the urge to play the Elgar Sonata which is very close to my heart. It combines a wonderful blend of majesty and intimacy which brings the Malvern Hills to mind every time I play it.” They have also included music by local composer, Ian Venables. His Three Pieces for Violin and Piano were the first works he composed after he moved to Worcestershire in 1986 and were his first artistic response to this inspirational environment. Also on the programme is Mozart’s exuberant C major sonata and the mighty ‘Kreutzer’ sonata by Beethoven. This extraordinary work is widely considered one Beethoven’s greatest masterpieces. So, all you need to do is join us at our popular venue of Christ Church and where you will be richly rewarded with a truly delightful programme .
