Fri 14 & Sat 15 June 2024 : Katharine Lam – classical piano

Katharine Lam

This will be a solo piano recital by Katharine Lam which will include Schubert’s last great sonata – Piano Sonata in Bb Major D.960 (amongst other works, see full programme below).

On a number of occasions Katharine Lam has played at Tincleton Gallery, sometimes alongside Duncan Honeybourne and on other occasions solo as she will be again this June. She has established a distinguished profile throughout the UK and abroad as recitalist, concerto-soloist, chamber musician, accompanist and music educator.

Following her London recital debut in 2003, she made her debut as soloist with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra in 2004 at Symphony Hall, Birmingham. The Birmingham Post praised her playing for its “glittering panache and terrific aplomb. Definitely the highlight of the evening.”

Fri 12 & Sat 13 April 2024 : Madeleine Mitchell (violin) and Motoki Hirai (piano)

Madeleine Mitchell

This concert by Madeleine Mitchell on violin with Motoki Hirai on piano is part of the UK-Japan Friendship Tour 2024 and after leaving us in Tincleton they will be touring Japan from the end of April performing in Tokyo, Kyoto, Nigata and other cities. Both are notable international musicians, with Madeline described by The Times as ‘one of the UK’s liveliest musical forces (and) foremost violinists’; whilst Motoki has performed in over 100 countries and the programme features premieres of two of his own compositions and arrangements. The programme features Beethoven Sonata No.10 op.96 and Grieg Sonata No. 3 in C Minor plus short pieces from Delius, Holst-Hirai, Hirai, and Elgar.

Fri 23 & Sat 24 Feb 2024 : Ida Pelliccioli – classical piano

We start 2024 with the superb classical panist Ida Pelliccioli who is travelling from Paris to play for us. Ida Pelliccioli was born in Bergamo, Italy. She studied at the Nice Conservatoire de Région and at the Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris. During her studies, Ida Pelliccioli was awarded several scholarships. Ida chose to avoid the international competition circuit and, before becoming a full-time pianist, received a double master diploma at the Sorbonne University – in Italian Literature and in Ancient Greek History. Ida tours internationally as well as teaching at Paris Conservatoire with a class of 35 students. We are thrilled that she is travelling from Paris especially to play for us in Tincleton. The programme will be D. Scarlatti, W.A. Mozart, M. Blasco de Nebra, and F. Schubert. The inspiration behind this programme is the forgotten music of Spanish composer from Sevilla, Manuel Blasco de Nebra (1750-1784). The heir to Scarlatti in many respects, he was moreover a composer well aware of what was happening elsewhere in Europe in the 1770s. His expressive world is far more searching than Scarlatti, a quality that sometimes reminds us of the music of Mozart and Haydn and pre announces Schubert and even Chopin.

Fri 15 & Sat 16 Dec 2023 : Duncan Honeybourne – classical piano

Duncan Honeybourne

Join us for this pre-Christmas solo piano treat from Duncan Honeybourne. He will play piano music with a Christmas theme and introduce us to his recent explorations of the music of German Romantic Woldemar Bargiel, the half-brother of Clara Schumann; and music by Kent housewife Jessy Reason (1878-1938), whose luxuriant and impressionistic music is currently being rediscovered and explored. The full programme is below, also with works by Robert Schumann, Anatoly Lyadov, Felix Mendelssohn, and Leopold Godowsky.

Duncan Honeybourne enjoys a diverse profile as a pianist and in music education. Following his concerto debuts at Symphony Hall, Birmingham, and the National Concert Hall, Dublin, he made recital debuts in London, Paris, and at international festivals in Belgium and Switzerland. Commended by International Piano magazine for his “glittering performances”, he has toured extensively in the UK, Ireland and Europe as soloist and chamber musician, appearing at many major venues and leading festivals. He has broadcast for over 20 years on BBC Radio 3 and more than 20 radio networks worldwide, including French, Swiss and Austrian Radio, ABC (Australia) and Radio New Zealand. Duncan has premiered over 70 new piano works and his many recordings reflect his long association with 20th and 21st century British piano music.

He teaches at the Royal Academy of Music Junior Academy, the University of Southampton and Sherborne School, and is Founder/Artistic Director of the Weymouth Lunchtime Chamber Concerts near his home in Dorset.
