“Murray McLachlan is a pianist with a virtuoso technique and a sure sense of line. His timing and phrasing are impeccable, and his tone […] is a perpetual delight” – BBC Music Magazine
A very rare opportunity to hear Brahms’ barnstorming, passionately youthful piano sonatas in a single recital. Murray McLachlan, Head of Keyboard and alumnus of Chetham’s continues the School’s 50th anniversary celebrations with a tour-de-force. Brahms conceived his early works on a monumental scale, and his piano sonatas turn the instrument into a virtual orchestra. Poetry, passion and panache in abundance!
