Gugnin January 2023

Friday, January 20th and Sunday, January 22nd, 6pm

Andrey Gugnin

Winner of 2014 Gina Bachauer Competition

Winner of 2016 Sydney International Piano Competition

Nominated BBC Classical Music CD of the Year


Rachmaninov and Grieg

Friday, January 20th


10 Preludes op. 23 and

13 Preludes op. 32

Andrey played op. 32 on his first visit, in 2014. It was one of our most memorable concerts and I have asked him to do op. 32 again, this time with op.23. These sets are Rachmaninov at his best. 

Sunday January 22nd, 6pm


Holberg Suite
Ballade op. 24
Lyric Pieces op. 43
Lyric Pieces op. 62

The piano music of Edvard Grieg is extensive, with nine books of short pieces, called Lyric Pieces. We will hear two books. 

The Holberg Suite is a homage to Bach, written like a Bach suite, and shows Grieg at his most proficient. 

After this visit to Eelswamp, Andrey will fly to London where he will record a CD of Grieg's music for Hyperion. This is your chance for a preview.
