Salih can Gevrek  (piano)

Mozart Piano Sonata No.12 in F major K.322
Chopin Twelve Etudes Op.10

Turkish pianist Salih impressed our audition panel with his crisp technique and excellent sensitivity to voicing (watch his performance of Bach’s Fugue in E minor from the 2018 Leeds Piano Competition for an idea of the rhythmic energy and concentration that goes into his playing).

It will be a particular treat to hear all 12 of the first book of Chopin Etudes. Every pianist has his favourite nightmare in this set, so to tackle them all is an exciting challenge.The Chopin will provide an interesting contrast to the Mozart which has a completely different set of technical and musical demands.
