The Sheepdrove Recital

May 17 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
  • This event has passed.

Mikhail Kazakevich began his education at Gorky State Conservatoire (part of the Moscow Conservatoire) where he graduated with honors, and then continued as a Professor at the conservatory for eight years following his graduation. From there he has gone on to an international career with performances throughout Europe, Asia and the Middle East.

The first half of his recital will feature two works by Mozart before focussing on five of the 18 Chopin Polonaises. Chopin opened a new chapter in the history of the genre: henceforth he would abandon conventional stylisations and head in the direction of the ‘epic-dramatic poem’.

“Of the floods of musicians from the Commonwealth of Independent States now filling the concert halls and recording studios of the West Mikhail Kazakevich is one of the most worthy of listening time.” The Times

Mikhail will also be one of the judges at the Sheepdrove Piano Competition held at the same venue on Sunday 19 May.
