Lytham St Annes Music Circle’s final concert of its current season takes place on Friday March 25 and features the pianist Anthony Hewitt, who replaces at short notice the previously advertised recital by the Russian Alexander Karpeyev.

Anthony has established a reputation as a pianist of formidable interpretative and technical ability.

Highlights of orchestral engagements include the RPO in London, National Symphony Orchestra and Princeton Symphony in the USA, as well as the Northern Chamber Orchestra and Sinfonia Viva in the UK.

He has given four recitals at Wigmore Hall, appeared across the USA, toured South America and Japan, and performed chamber music at high-profile festivals in Europe .

Anthony will be playing Beethoven’s Moonlight sonata, Schumann’s Davidsbündlertänze, Chopin nocturnes, études and polonaises, as well as other works by Saint-Saëns, Tchaikovsky and Kapustin.

The recital takes place in the Hall at King Edward VII and Queen Mary School, Lytham at 7.30 pm.

Tickets (£8 for adults and free for school students) can be obtained from Woodlands Gallery in Ansdell, Plackitt & Booth’s Book Shop in Lytham, the Violin Shop in Blackpool and on the door: those already purchased for the Karpeyev performance are valid for this event.
