A truly marvelous chain of events is about to take place the forthcoming month: pianists and composers from across the globe are going to honour the memory of Charles-Valentin Alkan, one of the greatest composers of all time and one of the three Founding Fathers of Middle Romanticism (together with Chopin and Liszt). These pianists are going to give concerts in memory of Alkan:
- Marc-André Hamelin (scheduled concerts);
- Jack Gibbons (details coming soon);
- Francesco Libetta;
- Alexander Paley;
- Mark Viner;
- Jonathan Powell;
- Vincenzo Maltempo;
- Many others!
Please support these events, invite everyone and enjoy the mysterious world of Alkan’s genius!
P.S. I am going to contribute a composition “Hommage à Alkan” on this occasion!
