Katya Apekisheva stands in for concert on Saturday 2nd November 2019

With great regret, we have to announce that Anna Fedorova will be unable to be with us this Saturday evening, 2nd November, in Parbold Village Hall. Anna has suffered a hand injury that makes it impossible for her to play for us. Fortunately, we have been able to arrange for Katya Apekisheva to take over.

‘A profoundly gifted artist’ who has ‘already achieved artistic greatness’.

‘Apekisheva’s technique is breath-taking’
Paul Driver, The Times.

Katya Apekisheva one of Europe’s most renowned pianists, in demand internationally as both a soloist and as a chamber musician is to perform in the intimate surroundings of Parbold Village Hall’s Auditorium on Saturday 2 November, 7.45pm. She will be standing in for the equally renowned pianist Anna Fedorova who has suffered a hand injury that makes it impossible for her to play for some weeks.

Katya Apekisheva will be playing a varied programme and will include Sergei Rachmaninov’s daunting and demanding Études-Tableau, which offers an opportunity to hear the Auditorium’s magnificent instrument at its very best. Her programme also includes Schubert’s ever-popular Moment Musicaux and Prokofiev’s Visions Fugitives, twenty short pieces, her performance of which won great critical praise in her Wigmore Hall, London recital.

Since becoming a prize-winner in the Leeds International and Scottish Piano Competitions and receiving awards such as the London Philharmonic ‘Soloist of the Year’ and the Terence Judd Award, she has been marked out as a pianist of exceptional gifts. She performs in the most famous concert halls as a soloist, chamber musician and with the world’s most distinguished orchestras.

Katya’s November concert marks her second appearance for Parbold Douglas Music having partnered violinist Jack Liebeck. The concert will offer the opportunity to listen to Katya in the intimacy of the Parbold Auditorium and hear her ‘simply beautiful sound’ and her acknowledged ability to ‘align herself perfectly with each composer’s worldview’ [Colin Clarke. Seen and Heard International: Wigmore Hall concert, London. June 2019]
