Brahms Variations on a Theme of Paganini Op.35, Book 1
Beethoven Sonata No.21 in C major, Op.53 Waldstein
Luke auditioned for the Society in November and is a virtuosic, highly gifted pianist studying at the Royal Northern College of Music. Check out Luke’s YouTube recording of the first Chopin Etude (link opens in new window) to hear his effortless technique and musical shaping.
The monumental Brahms Paganini Variations (the same theme used by Rachmaninov, Lutoslawski and Andrew Lloyd Webber) will get our new season off to a flying start, and the forceful and energetic Waldstein Sonata will provide an electrifying conclusion to Luke’s programme.
Luke is already a prizewinner in many prestigious international competitions, and there’s every chance that you will be witnessing a performer at the early stage of a very big career.
