Pianist Luka Okros: Bach & Rachmaninov

Festival Details - "Pianist Luka Okros: Bach & Rachmaninov"...

Start: Thursday, July 8, 2021 12:00AM
End: TBD

Part of Classical Season 2020/21

The London-based Georgian pianist performs Bach’s inventive Preludes and Rachmaninov’s supremely demanding Piano Sonata No.2.

Luka Okros has won eight first prizes in international competitions and performed in more than 40 countries, in many of the world’s most prestigious concert halls.

He opens with Bach’s monumental Partita No.6, the most complex of the composer’s six keyboard partitas, which were the first of his works ever to be published.

Bach’s Prelude and Fugue in C is the first piece in The Well-Tempered Clavier, a systematic exploration of harmony that would influence the course of musical history.

Okros continues with more pieces from the collection, which was scrutinised by later composers for its brilliant originality.

Similarly, Rachmaninov’s Preludes are miniatures that aren’t too small to contain highly original ideas.

The composer’s own favourite was the Prelude in B minor, Op.32 No.10.

Rachmaninov often performed his grand, expansive Piano Sonata No.2, which remains a breathtaking listening experience.
