The Fanny Davies International Piano Series is thrilled to welcome local pianist Sebastian Grand back to Guernsey for a solo piano recital and master class. Sebastian now conducts the Delaware County Symphony Orchestra and directs the Grand School of Music in Pennsylvania, USA.
He opens his programme with Schubert’s endearing and popular Impromptus, D. 899. These are full of colour, texture, and explore a huge range of characters and emotions. Chopin’s celebrated Scherzo No. 2 follows, with its tentative opening figure and subsequent strident chords. The second half explores Schubert’s songs in the form of colouristic and virtuosic transcriptions made by Liszt, alongside pieces inspired by water, appropriate for a Guernseyman’s return to the island: Liszt’s delicate Games of Water and Debussy’s evocative The Sunken Cathedral and passionate Joyous Island.
Sebastian Grand will work with talented local piano students in the 4pm workshop, and anyone is welcome to attend with no tickets required.
