Concert: Lineage: A Piano Recital feat Deborah Grimmett
- Fri 17 Aug 2018
- 8:00 pm
New York City based Canadian-British pianist, Deborah Grimmett, is performing multiple solo piano recitals across Canada and the United Kingdom. On Friday, August 17, 2018, she will make her UK debut in Manchester at the International Anthony Burgess Foundation.
Entitled Lineage, the concert repertoire explores the ways in which pre-existing music inspired and influenced composers of various stylistic periods. The programme includes works by Brahms, Debussy, Respighi, Ligeti, Irish composer Rhoda Coghill, and Iranian-Canadian composer, Iman Habibi.
Described as electric and absolutely breathtaking, (CiTR radio), and a true tour de force (Musetta Stone), pianist Deborah Grimmett’s performances have been heard throughout North America and Europe in major concert halls such as the Orpheum Theater, and the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts (Canada), Auditorium Santa Croce (Italy), Norges Musikkhøgskole (Norway), Espace Carpeaux (France), Ganz Hall, and Sherman Clay Steinway Hall (US).
She has appeared in concert with Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, Dearborn Symphony Orchestra, Ann Arbor Camerata, Dexter Orchestra, and NOVO Ensemble, among others. Ms. Grimmett’s performances and interviews have been broadcast on Classic 107, CiTR and South Carolina Public radios.
She is well-known for her collaborations with composer-pianist Iman Habibi. In 2010, the couple formed a piano duo, Piano Pinnacle, which has won several international prizes including the First Prize at the United States International Duo Piano Competition, and the Second Prize and Audience Choice Awards at Northwest International Piano Ensemble Competition.
Tickets are £10 advance and £12 on the door.
