A world renowned Russian pianist and harpsichordist Alexei Lubimov presents a captivating performance which will be the highlight of this year’s music events organised by MCS Young Artists Fund and form part of its 20th anniversary of the Concert Series “Heritage of Russian Pianism” Soirée Musicale. From Mozart and Schubert to Scriabin and Debussy, this one-off concert by one of the greatest contemporary pianists is simply not to be missed. Year after year, Alexei Lubimov brings thrilled audiences to their feet by exploring works of both traditional European classical music and modern composers.
The evening will be followed by optional post-concert champagne reception attended by artist, priced at £15.
Born and raised in Russia, Alexei Lubimov studied at the Moscow Conservatory with Heinrich Neuhaus and Lew Naumov. He was prevented from leaving the Soviet Union because of his strong commitment to western music. His repertoire is very diverse; he is known for his exploration of both traditional European classical music and experimental modern composers, including John Cage, as well as Schoenberg and Stockhausen and Boulez, Ives, Ligeti, Part, and Webern. He is a founder of the Moscow Baroque Quartet and the Moscow Chamber Acadamy and he created the music festival ‘Alternativa’. Alexei Lubimov has released his latest record of work by Beethoven ‘Moonlight – Waldstein – Storm’ in 2013.
