SERGEI PODOBEDOV – THE PIANO LIVE !
Russian born classical pianist SERGEI PODOBEDOV plays his second concert in Belper.
Following a sell out concert in September, Belper based Sergei Podobedov plays his second show in
his adopted home town at the Strutt Centre, Derby Road, Belper on 23 February.
The musical programme features
Beethoven's 'Apassionata', Chopin Sonatas and Liszt Sonata Number 6.
Sergei made his orchestral debut at the age of 12 when he played Chopin's 2nd Piano Concerto.
In 1990 he became the first recipient of the Queen Mother's Scholarship at the Royal College of
Music and, subsequently, performed with Sir John Gielgud at Windsor Castle for the Royal Family.
During the past 29 years Sergei has performed in concert halls across the world including venues in
London, New York, Moscow and San Francisco. He has been described by more than one conductor
as a virtuoso who combines musicality with a sense of style.
The Belper concert is the first in a Spring / Summer series that will culminate in June with a special
evening under the iconic crooked spire at the Church of St. Marys and All Saints in Chesterfield.
“When you see Sergei play live in concert you see a pianist whose whole body becomes part of the
instrument,” said promoter George Gunby.. “At the first Belper concert I was asked during the interval
to stage another concert. Sergei made a huge impact.”
A live album, recorded in California, will be issued in March.
