Chopin: 24 Preludes Op. 28

Joaquín Achúcarro has been a commanding presence on the international stage since his victory in England at the 1959 Liverpool International Competition and subsequent debut with the London Symphony in the Royal Festival Hall. A contemporary of Alfred Brendel, Achúcarro now appears almost exclusively in his native Spain and the USA and we are extraordinarily lucky to be welcoming him back to SJE Arts.
In addition to the Spanish works in the performance, and Debussy’s two Grenada themed pieces, Achúcarro will be playing Chopin’s 24 Preludes . The composition of these date from 1838/9, the winter that Chopin and George Sand spent in Majorca, and where Chopin had with him a copy of J.S. Bach’s ‘The Well-temperted Clavier’.

Duration: 2 hours with interval
