Alistair McGowan: Introductions to Classical Piano

Monday 23 July 2018

8pm • St. George's Guildhall • £20

After the success of his recent classical piano album, Alistair McGowan premieres a brand new show which brings together all his talents. He will play tracks from the album and some other short classics piano pieces: from Gershwin to Grieg, Mompou to Mendelssohn, Satie to Schubert. In between the pieces, he will talk a little
about history of each piece, the composer and his own connection to the music.

Expect a lot of beautiful music (with the odd mistake!), some interesting stories and a sprinkling of his trademark impressions in this work-in-progress show.

"Learning to play the piano has been an incredible challenge – often frustrating – but, ultimately, hugely enjoyable and emotional. It’s so satisfying when you realise that you are improving daily. I hope this encourages everyone who harbours a secret ambition take up music – it really is never too late!" - Alistair McGowan
