Steven Osborne

Fri 15 July @ 7:30 pm

One of the most sought-after pianists in the country, Steven Osborne will make a return visit to RVIPW with a unique opportunity to hear the complete ‘Études’ by Claude Debussy including the rarely performed ‘Étude retrouvée’. Debussy himself admitted the fiendish technical difficulty of these studies; however, these are certainly not studies to merely showcase the mechanical virtuosity of its performer but, also, their palette of colours and imagination. There is plenty of humour (listen out for the opening reference to Czerny), charm and fantasy too.

Steven will then play another one of the greatest masterpieces in classical music. Schubert’s final Piano Sonata, composed only months before the composer’s death, expresses all kinds of possible human emotions that are perhaps indescribable with words. At the very least, we will be taken on a truly emotional journey that is full of heavenly fantasy, heart-wrenching tragedy and glittering positivity.
