A Piano Recital by Kenneth Hamilton

Come this Sunday evening, Singapore will bear witness to the first performance ever of Alkan's Concerto for Solo Piano, long regarded as one of piano literature's most fiendish works.

The annual piano recitals in Singapore by Scottish virtuoso Kenneth Hamilton, professor at the University of Birmingham, have taken on an epic quality of late.

Kenneth Hamilton, acclaimed by the Straits Times as a "formidable virtuoso" and a regular at the Esplanade, presents a thrilling programme of Romantic masterpieces for piano, including Liszt's stupendous arrangement of Wagner's Tannhäuser Overture, and Chopin's much-loved second sonata.

To celebrate the bicentenary of French virtuoso composer Charles Valentin Alkan, close friend of both Chopin and Liszt, he presents the Singapore premiere of Alkan's amazing Concerto for Solo Piano-- perhaps the most difficult and dazzling piece ever written for the instrument. A unique concert not to be missed!

Programme:

Charles Valentin Alkan: Concerto for Solo Piano without Orchestra, op.39 (Singapore Premiere
Frederic Chopin: Sonata no.2 in Bb minor (funeral march)
Richard Wagner/Franz Liszt: Tannhäuser Overture
