The Winchelsea Arts are sorry to announce that, due to unforeseen circumstances, Giancarlo Staffetti will be unable to perform at the final concert of the season on Saturday 19th May. The post concert reception will also no longer take place.
however, Winchelsea Arts is delighted that Niel de Preez will perform the programme below. Having won two overseas scholarships from his native South Africa and several international prizes, Niel has become extremely successful in the international music scene both in concert halls and on the radio with his solo performances, his chamber collaborations and his work with leading orchestras.
Niel is both an inspirational teacher and an inspired performer. It is "the profound intimacy through strongly impressive playing" which makes hearing his recitals such a memorable experience. His programme choice of Schubert's monumental final sonata, Preludes by Debussy and Scriabin and Liszt's translation of Bach's organ prelude and fugue will highlight that unique combination of verve and virtuosity with sensitive and poetic playing for which he is renowned.
A fitting finale for the Winchelsea Arts 2017/18 concert season, it will certainly be, once again, an outstanding concert not to be missed. Tickets are available on line at www.winchelsea-arts.org.uk or locally at Winchelsea Farm Kitchen.
