Stefan Warzycki Piano Recital (Stefan Warzycki)

By | Published on Sunday 21 August 2011

If watching a Stefan Warzycki performance is going to teach you anything, it will be that playing piano with two hands is overrated. His left hand sweeps across the keys smoothly and confidently, covering so many notes that he may as well be playing with two hands. Debuting a piece from English composer Andrew Wilson, Warzycki creates a very tranquil atmosphere in the small church with the sonatina’s dreamy and slightly jazzy air. Performing Bach, Warzycki’s hand sweeps and trembles, maintaining a natural yet precise manner throughout the smooth yet powerful piece. And to add to his talents, Warzycki is also an animated performer, pulling faces and smiling to himself to show he’s enjoying every moment.

St Andrew’s And St George’s West, George St, 13, 25 Aug, 12.30pm (1.30pm), £7.00 – £9.00, fpp221.
