Perth born Alasdair Beatson’s international reputation has soared over recent years. He is renowned both as solo pianist and chamber musician. His typically varied programme includes a lovely pairing of Schubert and Ravel waltzes and a richly tuneful sonata by Korngold, famed for his film scores such as The Sea Hawk. Schoenberg’s 6 tiny miniatures provide the grit in the oyster of a programme which also includes expansively romantic music by Schumann.
'Beatson shapes and weights every phrase with a caring devotion … highly sensitive playing of rare insight.'
