This young Swiss-born, award-winning pianist already has an extensive European career and is equally successful as a composer. Janácek’s mysterious, haunting cycle of pieces evokes memories both happy and sad in music that is often as disconcerting as it is beautiful.

For pianists, Schumann’s great C major fantasy is a veritable touchstone of virtuosity whose poetic flights of imagination and visceral excitement inspired his pianist wife-to-be Clara Wieck to write “Yesterday I received your wonderful fantasy—today I am still half ill with rapture!”

A Swiss pianist who has every chance of becoming a great of his instrument.

Holy Trinity Church, Haddington

Holy Trinity stands on the site of a Franciscan friary (the original ‘Lamp of Lothian’ before that title passed to St Mary’s Church nearby) which was built here in the 13th Century. The friary was demolished in 1572, and almost two centuries later, in 1769, work was begun on a ‘qualified’ Anglican chapel which was finally consecrated as Holy Trinity in 1815. The present chancel was added and the interior remodelled in an attractive neo-Byzantine style in 1930.
