Last-minute cancellations (there are ALWAYS last-minute cancellations) led to a rather depleted programme, but at the eleventh hour a professional pianist asked if he might try out a piece he was working on for a concert. Why not? We had the space. So he also asked if his wife could try out one of her pieces. At the end of the concert we were treated to fantastic performances of the Chopin ballade number 4 and Scriabin’s piano sonata number 5. If we have the space in the programme, professional players will always be welcome.
