Event details: May 1: Elena Riu (piano)
Hispano-American pianist, promoter, educator and creative director Elena Riu, renowned for the intimacy and lyricism of her playing, is at the forefront of a new generation of British pianists.

May 8: Piers Lane plays Chopin
The distinguished pianist performs a recital of Nocturnes by Frédéric Chopin
Op. 15 - F major, F# major, G minor
Op. 27 - C# minor, Db major
Op. 48 - C minor, F# minor
Op. 62 - B major, E major
Op. Posthumous - C# minor

"The qualities that make Lane's approach to Chopin so
successful are the same regardless of whether he's playing
a Nocturne, the Barcarolle or the Sonatas. In the pair of
Nocturnes, Lane demonstrated marvellous quality of tone,
tremendous precision and muscle control regarding the
whispering inner voices of the pianissimo passages."

This regular series of weekly lunchtime concerts, which draws some of the country's finest performers to the univeristy, has become one of the highlights of Cambridge's musical calendar. The series is generously supported by the University Arts Council and we are therefore able to offer free admission to all concerts.
