Viv McLean - winner of the 2002 Maria Canals International Piano Competition in Barcelona - was amongst the earliest performers at SJE Arts and he has been back many times since. In 2014 he gave an acclaimed performance in the Piano Series with a programme that combined a selection of Chopin nocturnes and ballades and Beethoven’s ‘Waldstein’ sonata.

This evening Viv McLean plays two further Beethoven sonatas, No. 8 in C-minor named the ‘Pathétique’ for its drama and passion, and from the final magnificent trio, the middle sonata, No. 31 in A-flat major. His programme also includes a contemporary piano miniature by British composer Howard Skempton, a work premiered in Norwich, in December 2000, by Viv McLean.
