an evening solo piano recital by Katya Apekisheva
Saturday 9 July 2022 at 7:30 pm
In July 2022 we will finally resume our indoor recitals. Taking advantage of the summer season, we intend to reduce capacity and maximise ventilation to ensure the comfort of our guests. Outdoor seating options will also be available.
Our first event will feature Katya Apekisheva, described by Gramophone Magazine as a "profoundly gifted artist". Katya has appeared as a soloist with many of the world's leading orchestras including the London Philharmonic and she was a prize winner at the Leeds International Piano Competition. She is not only a soloist but she also has the artistry and delicacy that makes her a sought-after collaborative pianist. A long-term friend and favourite of Breinton, Katya is returning to perform a programme of Mozart, Chopin, Szymanowski and more, all on her way to Wigmore Hall.
Indoor seats are £20 each; outdoor seated and general access tickets also available.
Tickets will be on sale from 22 March 2022.
Described as a "profoundly gifted artist" by Gramophone Magazine, Katya Apekisheva has earned her place as one of Europe's most renowned and gifted pianists.
Born in Moscow, into a family of musicians, she attended the Gnessin Music School for exceptionally gifted children making her stage debut at the age of 12. She continued her studies in Jerusalem at the Rubin Music Academy and later at the Royal College of Music in London.
From these auspicious beginnings she went on to be a Prizewinner of the Leeds International Piano competition and has gone on to enjoy a career performing with many of the world’s leading orchestras, including the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the Philharmonia Orchestra, the Halle Orchestra, the Moscow Philharmonic, the Jerusalem Symphony, the English Chamber Orchestra and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, working with renowned conductors such as Sir Simon Rattle, David Shallon, Jan Latham-Koenig and Alexander Lazarev.
Her latest disc is a collection of impromptus which International Piano called "a fascinating and engrossing album".
As a recording artist, Katya has received widespread critical acclaim for her interpretations from Gramophone Magazine’s Editor’s Choice award and International Piano Magazine’s Critics’ choice to Classic FM’s CD of the week as well as a Classical Brit award to name but a few. Katya’s discography includes solo and chamber works by Mussorgsky, Shostakovich, Stravinsky, Dvorak and Rachmaninov.
Recent and future highlights include performances in Russia, Norway, Japan, Switzerland, Italy, Denmark, Germany, Australia and at home in the UK at the Bath Mozart Fest, St. George’s Bristol and the prestigious Wigmore Hall – where she is a regular presence. Her intense artistry and delicacy makes Katya a most sought after collaborative pianist, working with artists such as Janine Jansen, Natalie Clein, Guy Johnston, Maxim Rysanov, Jack Liebeck, Boris Brovtsyn, Alexei Ogrinchouk and Nicholas Daniel and she appears regularly at major chamber music festivals around the world. Katya also has a highly successful and personally rewarding piano duo partnership with Charles Owen, performing regularly at festivals worldwide. Together they are co-Artistic Directors of the London Piano Festival which began in 2016.
