George Fu will perform a recital at St Martin-in-the-Fields this Thursday.
Thursday 2nd November 2023
“Fu’s approach is intelligent but fuelled by a deep emotion and understanding of the repertoire” writes BBC Music Magazine of this striking young American pianist. “It’s all rather breathtaking”. But judge for yourself, as Fu brings a whole evening of his deeply individual artistry to the elegant surroundings of St Martin-in-the Fields. True to form, he’s exploring new music by voices as diverse as Timo Andres and Freya Waley-Cohen. But he’s also performing his beloved French music, from the ravishing poetic visions of Debussy to the dark, flashing brilliance of Ravel’s Gaspard de la nuit. Expect to be enchanted.
