August 24, 2013, 16h30 / 4.30pm. 'And the Pianoforte Sings...' / 'Ainsi chante le pianoforte' - Gohar Manvelyan, piano

Concert Review
Many thanks to Gohar Manvelyan for an exquisite recital last Saturday. Gohar's lightness of touch, attention to detail and beautiful musical phrasing entranced the large audience present at Christ Church Cathedral. The different movements of the Bach Partita took on their own delightful character, inspired by its origin in dance form, as Gohar had helpfully explained to the audience,  The Haydn variations grew in grandeur and intensity, and the Chopin Ballade was delivered with both sensitivity and majesty. Thank you Gohar, and we look forward to welcoming you back to L'Oasis Musicale.
