PART 2 ‘The Art of the Encore’

Philip Fowke is one of Britain’s most outstanding pianists and distinguished musicians. His appearances with leading orchestras and in solo recitals and chamber music, together with his many broadcasts and recordings, have earned him international respect, admiration and the affection of audiences.

The first part of the programme reflects some of Philip’s particular interests, including the music of Ronald Stevenson (a good friend of his) and Busoni (on whose music Ronald Stevenson was a great authority).

The second part ‘The Art of the Encore’, features music associated with some of the great pianists of the past. In his own unique style, Philip will introduce the works and share his personal association both with them and with the pianists who played them.
