Khatia Buniatishvili, piano

Part of Classical Season 2017/18

The young Georgian pianist Khatia Buniatishvili has swept the globe with her fiery musicianship.

She is known for her no-holds-barred risk-taking at the keyboard. Praised for her `keyboard magic of exceptional sensitivity' and `jaw-dropping virtuoso technique' (Evening Standard) she has won a devoted following among concert audiences worldwide.

Her programme opens with the expansive and impassioned Sonata No.3, a youthful masterpiece by Brahms. In the second half a Russian ballet transcription reworks the colourful thrill of a full orchestra for the piano alone – Mikhail Pletnev’s sympathetic version of Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite. Khatia Buniatishvili concludes the recital with jaw-dropping virtuoso music by Liszt – the stirring Rhapsodie espagnole and the brilliant Reminiscences of Don Juan.
