International Rachmaninoff Conf.25-27 Sept'09 Manchester(UK)

Our next international Conference will take place in Manchester (UK), at Chetham's School of Music, on 25-27 September 2009.

The theme of the Conference will be "Rachmaninoff's Transcriptions".

We are very pleased to announce that our guest of honour will be the distinguished Franco-American pianist and Rachmaninoff veteran François-Joël Thiollier, who will lead a master class and play a recital.

Mr Thiollier studied with Robert Casadesus and distinguished teachers of the Paris Conservatoire as a child. Subsequently, he studied with Sascha Gorodnitzki at the Juilliard School of Music where he graduated aged 18, with top honours. He went on to win eight international piano competitions, notably the Brussels Queen Elisabeth and the Moscow Tchaikowsky Prizes. His enormous repertoire of some eighty concertos, his exceptional musical culture and his extraordinary pianistic command have ensured international acclaim.

Programme details and booking arrangements will be published on this website and in the Society's Newsflash for members at the end of this month.
