Suffolk audiences are guaranteed a world class performance when Israeli pianist Ariel Lanyi plays Mozart with the Suffolk Philharmonic Orchestra at The Apex, Bury St Edmunds, on Sunday 16 July.

International pianist Ariel Lanyi 

One of the world’s fastest-rising stars of classical music, Ariel has been selected by the Young Classical Artists Trust (YCAT) for a series of unique performing opportunities around the world which includes this debut performance with the county’s fully professional Suffolk Philharmonic Orchestra.

Mozart’s Piano concerto No.20 and Beethoven

Ariel will play Mozart’s Piano concerto No.20 – one of only two of Mozart’s piano concertos in a minor key but which concludes with a triumphant change to the major key. The concert also includes Beethoven’s Symphony No.1 and the overture to the opera “Amadis” by Johann Christian Bach, one of twenty children of the great Johann Sebastian Bach.

Spring and Summer series of “Celebration Sundays” concerts

The event completes the Spring and Summer series of “Celebration Sundays” concerts at The Apex which explore the evolving Classical style through the masterpieces of Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven, with a glance back to J.C. Bach.

Leslie Olive, conductor of Suffolk Philharmonic Orchestra, said: “The Royal Albert Hall is not the only place you can hear stupendous playing this summer, as our two previous concerts in the Celebration Sundays series at The Apex have proved. The final concert in the series on Sunday 16th July promises to be every bit as outstanding and memorable. We are all hugely looking forward to hearing the wonderfully gifted Ariel Lanyi playing Mozart with us on that day. For a Proms quality performance, don’t miss it.”
