After the success of his piano album (released through Sony Classical) and his tour in 2018, Alistair McGowan is back with the show that brings together all his talents.
Alongside tracks from the album, Alistair will play some other short classic piano pieces: from Gershwin to Grieg, Mompou to Mendelssohn, Satie to Schubert. Join Alistair as he talks a little about the history of each piece, the composer and his own connection to the music.
WHY? Expect a lot of beautiful music (with the odd mistake!), some interesting stories and a sprinkling of his trademark impressions.
