French Connections

Details

British pianist Kathryn Stott is a regular visitor to international festivals both as soloist and chamber musician.

Having constantly performed around the world since 1978, when she was a prize winner in the Leeds International Piano Competition, her performances continue to be varied with appearances at the BBC Proms, extensive tours of Australasia, and collaborations with artists as diverse as cellist Giovanni Sollima, JP Jofre and his Hard Tango Chamber Band and Janine Jansen. Kathryn’s Melbourne Recital Centre debut illuminates the piano music of four major French composers in a hand -picked program of keyboard delights.

‘French repertoire has been in my blood since I was a young girl and had the incredible opportunity to work with both Nadia Boulanger and Vlado Perlemuter. Without question, these formidable figures ignited a passion for French music which has dominated my performing career to date. Fauré is the musical love of my life. Alongside composers Debussy, Ravel and Franck, I look forward to sharing this program with you.’ Kathryn Stott
