Lisa Batiashvili is making her Bristol Proms debut at the Old Vic theatre
Monday 28th July, 20:30
The Bristol Proms festival, inspired by the hugely popular concerts held in the city in the 1840s, presentes music performances in ways never done before by combining world-class classical music artists with cutting-edge digital technologies.
With live relay filming in intimate close-up, the phenomenal virtuoso Lisa Batiashvili illustrates her passion for the music of Bach with pieces from her forthcoming album.
Lisa Batiashvili is one of the rising stars of classical music who is attracting listeners from beyond the realms of classical music. What attracts people to her playing is not only its clarity but the passion that she finds in it. The repertoire she is playing is centred on the music of Bach, though she will also be visiting the fantastically engaging music of Piazzola. She is a very emotional player and with her husband, the celebrated oboist Francois Leleux she will be playing the startling new arrangement of Bach's Erbarme Dich, within which listeners will be able to understand something about what those two musicians mean to each other as well as what the music means to them.
