Roots & wings
On Friday, 29 th March, as part of the Mountshannon Arts Festival, we are pleased to host the Russian pianist Alexander Ardakov in a solo concert of mainly 19 th century piano classics. Alexander trained in the Moscow Conservatoire and from 1981-91 performed with the Moscow State Philharmonia. He then moved to London where he is Professor of Piano at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. Alexander is recognized internationally, having played in major recital venues such as London’s Wigmore Hall, St. John’s Smith Square, St. Martin in-the-Fields; Carnegie Recital Hall, N.Y.; Bosendorfer Hall, Vienna, to name a few. Last autumn’s concert in London’s Southbank was sold out two weeks ahead of time. So why Mountshannon? He once confided to a friend who lives here that he wanted to add Ireland to his international venues. This promises to be an exceptional evening of music, not to be missed.
