Piano Recital - Olga Stezhko

A sublime performance by extremely talented and sensitive pianist Olga Stezhko delighted the audience fortunate to be at her lunchtime recital at St Pancras Church, London. The well judged and satisfying programme led from the familiar Pavane by Ravel to four late piano pieces by Brahms, dedicated to Clara Shumann, a less familiar and lively tarantella by 20th century Belarusian composer Lev Abeliovich and finally three evocative 'Images' by Claude Debussy. The retiring collection was in aid of Friends of BCH. Daryl Ann Hardman, chairwoman of Friends of BCH, and Valery Dougan from the Belarusian Embassy in London both thanked Olga for donating this performance to help life limited children in Belarus.
