A concert from Swiss-French pianist Cédric Pescia on Thursday, April 27, at the Emily Anderson Concert Hall in the University of Galway, will bring the Bach element of Music for Galway’s 41st concert season to an end.

One of today’s most exciting pianists and the winner of the famous Gina Bachauer International Artists Piano Competition, he will present a programme of German classics with Bach at its centre.

Cedric Pescia’s repertoire spans many eras from baroque to contemporary and he is renowned for his elaborate programmes. A master of soft tones, he describes music is  language and movement at the same time.

Audiences will have a chance to experience his clear and inspired touch as he performs a programme for solo piano that will include classics such as Schumann’s popular Waldszenen (Forest Scenes), a suite of nine short pieces, and the penultimate of Beethoven’s piano sonatas, No. 31.  These pieces will be interspersed with French Suites by Bach.
