David will play Mussorgsky's Pictures from an Exhibition at his next recital on Saturday 2nd May 2015. The programme also includes works by Chopin and Rawshtorne. His summer recital on 25th July will feature the works of living British composers. For full details of both recitals, see Concerts page.
David's latest CD featuring Kapustin's Op 53 Preludes, and Sonata No 1 (Sonata-Fantasia) was released at the end of May 2013 - to critical acclaim.
Here is what music critics said about the recording:
Andrew McGregor on his weekly
Andrew Clark, in the Financial Times, wrote: "The interpreter needs a non-academic sense of freedom as well as a
dazzling technique, and Brain meets both demands in a performance that should win Kapustin new admirers."
Guy Weatherall wrote on his blog that the composer, a fine pianist himself, has recorded most of his own music, "yet in this new disc, Brain is every bit as dazzling and persuasive, and significantly better recorded".
