“Wass’s technique is beyond reproach” – The Artsdesk
“Instinctive, natural sounding rubato and gift for lyrical inflection” – Classics Today
Pianist and Director of Music at Yehudi Menuhin School, Ashley Wass presents a recital which traverses the centuries. From the intimacy of JS Bach to the sublime spiritualism of Beethoven’s late piano sonatas, the recital concludes with Shostakovich’s towering monument of 20th Century piano music. Rounding out the programme is Alexey Shor’s arrangement of Mikhail Pletnev’s Piano Sonata, a piece expertly crafted, highly communicative and deeply moving.
