Introducing another outstanding young pianist performing a wide-ranging and intriguing programme.

Music in Peebles presents Simone Tavoni 

Beethoven Piano Sonata No.7 in D Major, Op.10, No.3 

Schumann Kinderszenen, Op.15 

Chopin Ballade No.3 in A flat major, Op.47 

Martucci Pensiero Musicale, Melodia, Barcarola 

Liszt Canzone Napoletana 

Debussy Images oubliées 

Following the unforgettable recital by Florian Mitrea in 2020, we introduce another outstanding young pianist, this time Simone Tavoni from Italy, who is already in demand as a recitalist across Europe and the USA. 

His fascinating programme traverses almost 100 years of musical history from Beethoven’s early masterpiece to the rarely heard sonata by Sibelius (played here in an arrangement by Simone Tavoni himself). 

In between, we hear one of Schumann’s best-loved works, his set of 13 miniatures depicting childhood scenes, followed by Chopin’s passionate Ballade No.3. After three lyrical pieces by Giuseppe Martucci, much influenced by Schumann, Liszt shows his gentle side in a charming little notturno-like piece. The ‘forgotten’ three ‘Images’ by Debussy were overshadowed by his two famous books of Images, and remained unpublished until 1976. 

Another chance to hear a star of the future in a wide-ranging and intriguing programme.
