Pierre-Laurent Aimard signing CDs at QEH on 3rd November
Pierre-Laurent Aimard will be signing copies of his new album, Beethoven's Triple Concerto, Choral Fantasie and Rondo in B flat with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe and Nikolaus Harnoncourt, as well as his other recordings after his recital on Wednesday 3rd November at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London.
The recital programme includes Birtwistle's "Clocks" as part of the South Bank's celebration of the composer's work, together with music by Ligeti and Messiaen of whose piano works Aimard is the world's leading exponent. The performance will also give the audience a chance to hear the pianist perform "Le gibet" from Ravel's Gaspard de la Nuit
which he will be recording in February 2005 for release later that year.
