Sharona Joshua, one of Britain’s finest young fortepianists, presents a programme of classical favourites. Using her own copy of a fortepiano after Schantz, this recital promises to enhance the true virtuosic and improvisatory nature of these masterpieces.

Featuring alongside the beautiful and well known Sonatas by Mozart, Haydn and Beethoven are the lesser known yet equally dramatic, eloquent and often capricious pieces by CPE Bach; a composer rapidly being acknowledged as one of the greatest of his time.

“…here at last is a player who can provide an opposition to Andreas Staier’s hegemony in the field.”
Fortepiano and Harpsichord
