ALIM BEISEMBAYEV at the Purcell School 14 th June 2015

Who would have thought that some of the finest pianists around are being trained in England .None the less from the Purcell School a series of young pianists are breaking the tradition of English pianists sadly lacking in that necessary early training that has up to now been apparent only from the Eastern European countries and America.At last I was invited to see this remarkable place and to hear a remarkable young man about to embark on a trip to Fort Worth in Texas for the Junior Van Cliburn Competition.A student of Tessa Nicholson ,an old collegue ,Alim presented his programme that he will perform next week on the USA.Remarkably mature reading of the 7th Sonata by Prokofiev was matched by a dazzling Study by Ligeti.Very secure professional readings of the D major Prelude and Fugue Book 2 by Bach and the Sonata op 10n.3 by Beethoven maybe just lacking that sense of space and timing that only maturity will bring.A remarkable taught and passionate reading of Liszt 2nd Ballade following on with an equally finely controlled Chopin Fantasie ,Sense of colour and style in the Chopin C minor Nocturne followed atranscendental performance of Feux D.artifice.And fireworks very much in evidence in the Paganini study that finished the first half of a remarkably long and difficult programme.This is obviously yet another artist to add to the roster that are beginning to appear more and more often on the International concert scene.
