https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/jul/11/donald-trump-to-make-state-visit-to-britain-next-year

If Donald Trump comes to the UK, we will hold the biggest protest in British history – to say no to the bigotry which Trump represents and no to the complicity of our government in supporting his agenda.

Join this event – pledge to join the demo when Trump comes to the UK.

We will respond with not just one massive demo, but a range of actions and activities up and down the country.

The Stop Trump coalition is building a massive alliance of grassroots campaigns, trade unions, community groups, politicians and ordinary citizens to fight back against what Trump represents. We are committed to building a movement that puts the voices of those directly affected by racism, sexism and prejudice front and centre.

London: Maurizio Pollini at Southbank Centre March 13, 2018

March 13, 2018 at Royal Festival Hall in London.

tracking.php?code=1yty1bcSTvY3JVzKoQbhQw

Maurizio Pollini is revered worldwide as today’s towering elder statesman of the piano.

He makes a welcome return to Royal Festival Hall.

The Italian pianist’s performances here have always proved highlights of the season. In recent years, he has been praised for his `peerless, supremely authoritative performances’ (The Guardian) in music ranging from Bach to Boulez by way of Chopin, Schumann and much more.

`One of the things that’s always marked Pollini’s playing is its urgency. It’s the sense of being pulled forward that paradoxically gives Pollini’s famously tranced, beautiful sound its special quality’ (The Telegraph).

Repertoire:
Programme to be announced.

London: Boris Giltburg at Southbank Centre February 28, 2018

February 28, 2018 at St John’s Smith Square in London.

tracking.php?code=TNI3LSuPzOfR8KwnNwaso7

The Israeli pianist Boris Giltburg first rose to prominence while still in his teens.

After he won first prize at the Queen Elisabeth Competition, Brussels, in 2013, his career became stratospheric.

He has been particularly praised for his performances of Russian music and tonight’s concert is a special opportunity to hear him in the immensely colourful, intense and poetic set of Études-tableaux (picture studies), Op.39 by Rachmaninov.

The programme also features Giltburg’s own much-acclaimed transcription for piano of Shostakovich’s String Quartet No.8. The work contains ferocious emotion and many autobiographical elements.

The concert opens with Brahms’s rich-hued Fantasias, Op.116.

Repertoire:
Brahms: 7 Fantasias, Op.116
Shostakovich: String Quartet No.8 in C minor, Op.110 arr. Boris Giltburg for piano
interval
Rachmaninov: Etudes-tableaux, Op.39

Whether it’s the detail of a beautiful old growth oak tree, close up shots of the forest floor, or the spectacular grassland expanse with the back drop of the London skyline – there are countless opportunities to capture creative images on The Heath.

Anna Bonita focusing on the detail of an oak tree

London: Will Varley (Rescheduled date)

February 09, 2018 at O2 Shepherds Bush Empire in London.

tracking.php?code=C1sLhkvaOQJJwn7LAxQEMd

Combining melancholic ballads and fiery protest songs with audience interaction and surreal improvised comedy, Will Varley Music’s live performances have become grown ever more anarchic over the years. The folk singer comes to us in support of his critically-acclaimed fourth album, Kingsdown Sundown.

Words from Will about the venue change:
After much deliberation, we have decided to move my November tour to January and February 2018. I’ve been offered the opportunity to work with a really incredible producer but hopefully this will mean I’ll have a new album for you all very soon.

Unfortunately this is the only way we could make the dates work and although all tickets original will still be valid for the rescheduled shows, I’m really sorry for any inconvenience this still might cause any of you.

I haven’t made this decision lightly, but I feel like it will be for the greater good as I want to make the best record I can. I can’t wait for you all to hear the new songs.

See you all in 2018.

Will”

Ticket price: £17 excluding booking fees (original tickets still valid for new date).

Age Restriction: 8+; under 14s to be accompanied by adult 18+

Doors 7pm // Curfew 11pm. Set times / supports TBA closer to the date.

London: Martin Helmchen at Southbank Centre February 7, 2018

February 07, 2018 at St John’s Smith Square in London.

tracking.php?code=j9kLnAQMdS2S92pNbnp16o

The paper writes, `The world isn’t short of brilliant concert pianists, but [he] stands out even in that remarkable crowd.’ The young German artist has built an enviable reputation with emphasis on the Austro-German Classical and Romantic repertoire and a lively concern with contemporary music.

Helmchen has built an enviable reputation particularly in the classical and romantic repertoire. Schumann’s Novelletten form the largest and the least known among Schumann’s major piano cycles with the music clearly written in an exultant mood. In the second half we hear Beethoven’s Diabelli Variations, a startlingly original masterpiece filled with power, wit and virtuosity.

Repertoire:
Schumann: Novellette in F, Op.21 No.1; Novellette in D, Op.21 No.2; Novellette in D, Op.21 No.5; Novellette in F sharp minor, Op.21 No.8
interval
Beethoven: 33 Variations on a waltz by Diabelli, Op.120

London: Paul Lewis at Southbank Centre January 23, 2018

January 23, 2018 at Royal Festival Hall in London.

tracking.php?code=PZgVCXzUETitZryuFRqi2S

Paul Lewis is one of today’s most celebrated interpreters of Classical repertoire.

In a new series, the British pianist brings together three key figures, Haydn, Beethoven and Brahms, tracing the thread of musical heritage from one to the next.

Tonight’s programme is bookended by two sparkling Haydn sonatas that show the composer at his most witty.

Beethoven, who was for a time Haydn’s pupil, almost trumps the senior composer at that game in his late Bagatelles, Op.126. In these six brief pieces, punchy inventiveness rubs shoulders with profound lyricism.

Brahms’ Op.118 also consists of six contrasting pieces, but these encapsulate emotions ranging from impassioned extroversion to the most haunted, darkly reflective inner journeys.

Repertoire:
Haydn: Piano Sonata in C, Hob.XVI/50
Beethoven: 6 Bagatelles, Op.126
interval
Brahms: 6 Pieces for piano, Op.118
Haydn: Piano Sonata in G, Hob.XVI/40
