Four Hands Christmas recital
Schubert – Fantasie
Barber – Ballet suite
Rachmaninov – 6 morceaux
We are delighted to bring together two of our regular and favourite concert pianists, full of spirit, refinement, considered and intuitive musical judgement, not forgetting a real sense of fun. They return to the salon scale and intimacy of The Dysart Petersham after a number of extremely popular performances here, separately, over the last few years – two big and warm personalities.
Russian born Veronika Shoot, acclaimed at just 6 years old by Yehudi Menuhin as ‘destined to become a great pianist’, moved to England aged 5, and gave her debut piano recital aged 7. She has dazzled audiences worldwide, as “one of the most charismatic and versatile” performers of her time, playing a wide range of solo and chamber repertoire.
Veronika has given recitals in countless prestigious venues throughout the UK and abroad, such as the Queen Elizabeth Hall, Wigmore Hall, The Purcell Room, Steinway Hall, Holland’s Amsterdam Conservatoire and the International Mozart Festival in Istanbul.
Her exceptional talent has been recognised widely by distinguished musicians who have followed her development, including Lord Yehudi Menuhin and John Lill.
Ukrainian born Sasha Grynyuk studied at the National Music Academy of Ukraine and later at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London with Ronan O’Hora. After graduation he also benefited from artistic guidance of such great musicians as Alfred Brendel and Murray Perahia.
Sasha was described by legendary Charles Rosen as “an impressive artist with remarkable, unfailing musicality always moving with the most natural, electrifying, and satisfying interpretations”.
Winner of over ten International competitions, prizes and awards Sasha was chosen as a Rising Star for BBC Music Magazine and International Piano Magazine.
His recent successes include 1st prizes of Rio de Janeiro International Piano Competition, Grieg International Piano Competition and Guildhall School’s most prestigious award – the Gold Medal – previously won by such artists as Jacqueline Du Pre and Bryn Terfel.
