The Classical Collection

Pianist: Vicky Yannoula
Pianist: Peter Jablonski

This evening will encapsulate the magic of two of our favourite instruments – the piano and the human voice.

The three finalists in the Pendine International Voice of the Future Competition will entice us with breathtaking performances as they compete for the prestigious Pendine Trophy and cash prize that aims to advance the career of young singers. Each soloist will present a diverse programme to highlight their vocal and artistic talent, striving to impress the judging panel and audience.

Whilst the adjudicators deliberate on the finalists’ performances, we are delighted to welcome to the stage our own Music Director, Vicky Yannoula, who will join forces with renowned pianist Peter Jablonski, in a dynamic and moving musical collaboration inspired by the singing quality of the piano and the power and magic of its repertoire. Peter has performed extensively worldwide with leading orchestras and is internationally acclaimed for his fluency of playing. In 2015 Vicky, who has performed at Thessaloniki Concert Hall and London’s Queen Elizabeth Hall, released her world-premiere recording (with pianist George-Emmanuel Lazaridis) of Beethoven’s symphonies 1 & 5 arranged for piano 4hands by Carl Czerny. Vicky is looking forward to sharing her performance skills and introducing herself to her new Eisteddfod family. As these two thrilling international pianists take to the stage, be prepared for two-pianos fireworks!
