ONE of the highlights of Music Nairn’s 2014 season is a performance by well loved British pianist Martin Roscoe, whose career spans four decades.
This has seen him appear as a concerto soloist at the Proms and share the stage with prestigious orchestras both in the UK and all over the world, including performances with conductors Simon Rattle and Mark Elder.
He is also known for especially close links with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC National Orchestra of Wales, BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Hallé, Manchester Camerata, Northern Chamber Orchestra and with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra
However, his thoughtful musicianship has also earned him great respect and popularity as chamber musician and recitalist.
The second half of his Nairn programme will be devoted to Schubert’s best known Sonata, D960 in Bb major, which was written in the last year of the composer’s short life.
Opening the evening will be a jocular Haydn Sonata in D major, followed by Beethoven’s fiery early Sonata no 5 op10 and five pieces from Hungarian composer Erno Dohnányi, whose work features on a recent Roscoe album.
Martin Roscoe will appear at Nairn Community and Arts Centre on Saturday 8th November at 7.30pm.
