Dinara Klinton, piano – 19th August

Bach arr Busoni: Prelude and Fugue in D major, BWV 532
Medtner: Piano Sonata No 12 in B flat minor (“Sonata Romantica”)
Beethoven: Piano Sonata No 28 in A, Op 101
Liszt: Transcendental Etudes (selection)

Ukrainian-born Dinara Klinton studied in Moscow and at the Royal College of Music.  She was the first holder of  the College’s prestigious Benjamin Britten Fellowship, for which  her project was a recording of Liszt’s Transcendental Studies;  her performance of them was described by Andras Schiff as “astonishing … a real virtuoso”.

Nikolai Medtner, a pianist-composer in the mould of Rachmaninov and Scriabin, moved to Britian in the 1930’s, where he was highly esteemed, and his Sonata Romantica was premiered in Glasgow in 1931.
