Trinity Laban Piano showcase

There is a chance to hear three up-and-coming pianists at St John's Smith Square tomorrow, 21 June 2016, as Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance are presenting a piano show case. Three students will be performing, Giulio Potenza, Gen Li and Jenna Sung. Potenza was described as 'a very gifted and deep pianist' by Martha Argerich, whilst Li was the 2015 winner of the prestigious Jaques Samuel Piano Competition. Sung will be performing a piece by Stephen Montague which was composed specifically for her.

The programme includes music by Haydn, Beethoven, Rachmaninov, and Janáček plus Lowell Liebermann and Stephen Montague. Full information from the St John's Smith Square website, or the Trinity Laban website. The concert is being broadcast live on BBC Radio 3 which means there is a chance to listen again for 30 days.

 The programme is being dedicated to Deniz Gelenbe who was previously Head of Keyboard Studies at Trinity Laban, and is credited with helping to make Trinity Laban’s piano department one of the best in the world.
