Gibbons: Nocturne, Impromptu, Consolation


Holywell Music Room
, Oxford
Wednes
day 9th April 2014 at 8.00PM

 
   
Jack Gibbons performs Bach's dazzling Goldberg Variations (with which he made his acclaimed Queen Elizabeth Hall London debut in 1984) alongside the music of Chopin (including the elegiac 4th Scherzo) and some of Gibbons' own beautiful compositions).
 
 

"Like a magician, Gibbons brought everything under his dominant spell. He won a rapturous ovation from the audience for playing that demonstrated a formidable technique, true musicianship and sheer poetry. Gibbons' affinity with [the composer] is such that he transcends mere recital; rather, he becomes one with the composer, absorbing his moods and passions, and recreating his bravura technique."
Oxford Times
