The brilliant Italian pianist Vanessa Benelli Mosell will be performing in two very special concerts in the UK in the coming weeks. The first performance will be in St Andrew’s Church Lyddington on Saturday 30th August. The church built of golden-brown ironstone in-keeping with the architecture of the village will be a delightful setting for solo piano works by Chopin, Lizst and Stravinsky.
A rising star from a young age, Vanessa graduated from the Royal College of Music in 2012. She has been awarded the Elba Festival Prize by Yuri Bashmet and more recently won the first Award of the Festival Pietrasanta as an outstanding young talent. Not only is she a Young Steinway artist, but has also been associated with Peugeot and Pleyel’s latest collaborative project.
On Thursday 28th August she performed live on BBC Radio 3’s InTune programme, and displayed her beautiful sensitivity with the instrument, yet demonstrated an impressive virtuosity.
Vanessa will also be performing with cellist Matthew Barley at London’s Kings Place on the 13th September. Forming part of Kings Place Festival 2014, the concert programme is headlined “Classical Works; Folk Roots” and the repertoire includes Schumann’s Adagio, Allegro and Five Pieces in Folk Style, Tsintsadze’s Five Pieces on Folk Themes, Janacek’s Pohadka and Bartók’s Rumanian Dances.
