Join Wigmore Hall Artist in Residence Beatrice Rana, piano, for a programme that includes two mighty sonata challenges. Her 2022 Barbican performance with the LSO of Beethoven’s ‘Emperor’ Concerto was described by Bachtrack as ‘regal throughout, revealing the work’s beauties as much as its grandeur’, while of her 2021 Chopin recital on disc Gramophone suggested that ‘her playing has fire and poetry, imagination and originality, temperament and charm, all on top of fearless technical address’.
