The Under Ground Theatre’s 19th Chamber Recital season starts with a Piano recital from one of our artists in residence – Irina Lyakhovskaya.
Irina’s programme today continues her playing of all of Beethoven’s 32 Piano Sonatas. This is the third of eight concerts, over four seasons, and today’s acoustic joys will include The “Pathetique” Sonata, Op.13.
Irina Lyakhovskaya was born in 1977 in St. Petersburg, Russia. She graduated from the St. Petersburg Conservatoire in 1999 where she studied with Alexander Sandler and gave numerous public performances; both solo and with orchestra. In 2000, Irina was invited to continue her studies in England as a postgraduate student at Trinity College of Music, London with John Bingham.
In June 2003 Irina won 1st Prize in the TCM Association’s Soloist Competition with her interpretation of the Schumann Piano Concerto. She has given many performances in England, including a solo recital at St. Martin in the Fields, Rachmaninov’s 2nd Piano Concerto in St. John’s Smith Square and Brahms’ 1st Piano Concerto at the Blackheath Halls (both with conductor Peter Stark).
She has toured extensively; performing in Germany, Sweden, Switzerland, Portugal, France, Italy and Greece working internationally as a soloist and a chamber musician with her duo partner Eleanor Percy.
