Four Ballades

The well-loved French pianist Bernard d’Ascoli first came to the attention of British audiences in the early eighties for his prize-winning performance at the Leeds International Piano Competition. Best known for his exquisite and deeply-felt performances of the Romantic repertoire, he is particularly famed for his interpretations of Chopin, Schumann and Liszt. Tonight’s programme juxtaposes the four piano ballades of Chopin with Brahms’s fascinating early 4 Ballades op. 10.
