Renowned Russian pianist visits Castlebar

Going Out

CLASSICAL NIGHT Tsybuleva’s Castlebar programme will feature works by Chopin, Tchaikovsky and Irish composer Siobhán Cleary.

Acclaimed Russian pianist Anna Tsybuleva will perform at The Linenhall Arts Centre in Castlebar tomorrow night (Wednesday), March 7, at 8pm as part of a Music Network tour.
Winner of the prestigious Leeds International Piano Competition in 2015, Anna Tsybuleva has astounded audiences and critics alike with her daring and bravura-filled interpretations of classic works. A born performer, her muscular, rhythmic playing and overtly nuanced attack give every accent a meaning, infusing the most familiar pieces with modernity and breathing new life into neglected works.
Since her success in Leeds, Tsybuleva has performed a string of engagements alongside many of Europe’s leading ensembles, including the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the St Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra, Hallé Orchestra and Basel Symphony Orchestra. As a soloist, she has also given recitals at London’s Wigmore Hall, the Shanghai Opera House Orchestra, the Salle Cortot in Paris, and Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels.
For this recital, Tsybuleva will be performing a programme featuring a selection of Chopin’s finest nocturnes and mazurkas; the set of Tchaikovsky’s 12 short character pieces contained in ‘The Seasons’; and ‘An Cailleach’, a new commissioned work by Irish composer Siobhán Cleary, evoking winter. Siobhán Cleary will also give a Composer’s Voice talk during the concert.
