Virginia Black Piano Recital

Performed by Virginia Black

4th March 2017 @ 7:30pm - 9:30pm

Concert duration is approximate
The Lion Ballroom is delighted to welcome the return of the international pianist VIRGINIA BLACK who appeared last year in a recital as part of the Leominster Festival. She is playing a Mozart programme which includes four piano sonatas – K333, K457, K332 and K310. The concert is on SATURDAY MARCH 4th at 7.30 pm and not on our usual Sunday afternoons. She has played at many international festivals, including the Göttingen and Carmel Bach festivals, and the Herne and York early music festivals. She has pursued a worldwide concert schedule including the Paris Festival d’Été, the Prague Spring Festival and a series of recitals in the United States.


Virginia has continued to nurture many talented musicians at the Royal Academy as professor of harpsichord, chair of postgraduate diploma studies and senior postgraduate tutor. She has also given numerous external master classes and performance classes including Oxford University, Eton College and the Ivy League Universities.

In addition to live performances, she has made many recordings for both radio and television around the world and in England has been featured as ‘Artist of the Week’ on BBC Radio 3. Her library of CD recordings has been recognised through Editor’s Choice in The Gramophone and Critic’s Choice in Classic CD.

Virginia is rediscovering her roots as a pianist, with recent recitals in England and Europe of baroque and classical masterworks. In September 2012, at the David Josefowitz Recital Hall, London, she gave the World Premiere performance of ‘The calm, the storm’ a piano piece specially written for her by Oliver Davis.

In December 2013 she released a double CD of the six Bach Partitas (BWV 825–830) played on the piano and is currently recording a series of Scarlatti Sonatas.

·         “Virginia Black’s command of her instrument is total; she plays as though she belongs naturally to her instrument”
