FREE (donations welcome) | directions
Aptly described as a “Rach star"(Washington Post), Sofya Gulyak was the first woman in the history of the competition to be awarded 1st prize and the Princess Mary Gold Medal at the 2009 Sixteenth Leeds International Piano Competition. Since then she has won many other international prizes including the William Kapell International Piano Competition and has performed with acclaimed conductors and orchestras throughout the world. Her concert will feature two works by composers who honor compositions and themes by others: Brahms' Variations and Fugue on a theme by Handel and Franz Liszt’s transcriptions of songs by Schubert, ending with the magnificent Schubert Wanderer Fantasy.
Audience members are invited to a post-concert Wine & Words in the church social hall – a fun and informal question and answer session with the musicians, with complimentary beverages.
