Norah Sande Award Piano Recitals Semi-finalsLocation: The Birley Centre
The internationally-renowned Norah Sande Award provides a chance to hear some of the world’s most exciting young adult pianists battle for the title,
a cheque for £2,000 and a recital opportunity.
On Saturday, semi-finalists perform 20-minute programmes. The audience is welcome to join and leave between performances. On Sunday, three
finalists play a full recital programme of classical, romantic and contemporary pieces, none of which will have been played during the semi-finals.
Last year’s winner, Bo Lyu, a RAM scholar, had already performed in Colston Hall, with the Sainsbury Soloist string ensemble, at the Beijing Int Music Festival and at Liszt’s bicentenary concert in Shanghai before delighting the Birley Centre audience.
Tickets for Sunday’s final can be booked on Saturday or
on the door. Children free. www.sande-award.co.uk
