It is three years since our patron, ALASDAIR BEATSON, performed in this series. He came first in 2007 as he was embarking on a life as a professional musician.
Alasdair combines a career as one of the UK’s most prominent chamber pianists with appearances as soloist in especially varied and adventurous repertoire all over the world. His chamber collaborations include performances with Adrian Brendel, Alexander Melnikov and Pieter Wispelwey.
