Ulverston International Music Festival presents
Lunchtime Piano Recital: Emanuil Ivanov
Tuesday 7 June 1-2.10pm
Young Bulgarian pianist Emanuil Ivanov is already making a name for himself as a hugely exciting pianist of artistic individuality and exceptional technical wizardry.
He brings to the Festival the seminal work of the late American composer Frederic Rzewski, The People United Will Never Be Defeated: a vast, monumental set of variations inspired by the great Goldberg of Bach, and Diabelli of Beethoven. At over an hour long, with a recurring catchy tune and including whistling, extraneous lid noises and an improvisation, this will be an event. And in today’s tragic times, the narrative to the folk theme on which it is based is never more relevant.
UIMF disclaimer: Artists or programme can be subject to change, and where a headline performer with top billing cancels, we will endeavour to find a like-for-like replacement. Refunds will only be offered in the event of the concert itself being cancelled.
