Lunchtime recital - 10 Rachmaninoff & 3 Debussy Preludes

Postby MarkStein » Fri Sep 04, 2009 5:19 pm

10 Preludes, Op 23 - Rachmaninov
3 Preludes ( 'Ondine', 'Feux d'artifice', 'Les fées sont d'exquises danseuses') - Debussy

Friday September 11th - 1:00 - 2:00 p.m.

St John's Church, Waterloo Road (corner of Exton Street), London SE1 8TY

Music may evoke all kinds of sentiments and emotions: joy, sadness, nostalgia, passion but these words are inadequate generalities that cannot do any justice to the nuances that music expresses and language simply cannot. This music is a prelude to life, an invitation to allow archetypal messages to enter your world and flood your whole being.

Phil's performances combine engaging presentation with powerful and passionate musicality. His mission is to generate a level of excitement about the piano and its expressive possibilities that has not been known since the nineteenth century when it was a relatively new invention.

The combination of Phil's virtuoso technique and his fresh and natural way of playing brings energy and excitement to both old and new music in a way that challenges stereotyped preconceptions about musical genres.

sounds like a fascinating programme!

What's Phil's relationship with Rachmaninoff's music and why did he choose op. 23 especially?

Hi there, thanks for the question. Phil is a huge fan and admirer of Rachmaninoff and loves the Op.23 Preludes particularly; he has made recordings of these also. If you wish to contact Phil directly with any questions or for a more specific answer to your question, you can email him at . Best wishes, Mark

Hi Mark,

Thanks! Maybe you can invite Phil to express his insights into the Preludes here on this forum?
I've also played a few, but am not a professional. Many interested forum members will join in I am sure.
