Your chance to hear one of the greatest pianists of his generation

THE extraordinarily talented pianist Martin James Bartlett will be performing in Edington Priory Church on Saturday 24th June at 7.30pm as part of Edington Arts.

Edington Arts organisers say, “At last, after lockdown cancellations and a backlog of bookings, we are delighted to be able to welcome the extraordinarily talented and charismatic pianist Martin James Bartlett to Edington Arts.

“Having won the BBC Young Musicians competition in 2014 at the tender age of 18, he has gone on to fulfil the promise of a glittering career, performing all over Europe and making a number of recordings which have received brilliant reviews. He combines flawless technique, adventurous and wide-ranging musical tastes, and huge emotional depth to produce performances which are remarkable on many levels.

“His programme for Edington Arts is mostly, but not exclusively, French: Couperin, Debussy, Rameau and Ravel, interspersed with Haydn and Schumann/Liszt.  This will make for a lovely concert of delicate and summery music.”

Full programme details are on the Edington Arts website, and you can secure your tickets, still at 2014 prices, now by ringing Chrissy on 01380 831256 or emailing sue@edingtonarts.org; £20/£15/£10. Those aged 18 and under come free.
