KEYBOARD EVOLUTION - DAY TWO

 

THE REVOLUTIONARY PIANO 

DINARA KLINTON Grand Piano

 

1.00pm St George’s Church, Deal

DinaraKlinton’s performance of Liszt’s Transcendental Études is astonishing. She is a real virtuoso, a born pianist, a very natural player. Sir András Schiff

Liszt’s dazzling set of twelve Transcendental Etudes were revolutionary at the time of their creation, pushing the technical limits of pianists and indeed the piano itself to new levels.  While extremely difficult technical studies, they are also deeply moving and create a panoply of rich imagery. To perform this complete set of virtuosic studies we welcome one of the bright young stars of piano, CMF Artist and Ukranian pianist Dinara Klinton, winner of innumerable international prizes.
