Ronald Brautigam

Plays Chopin & Mendelssohn

One of the most exciting historical keyboard players in the world right now performs Mendelssohn and Chopin as it would have sounded in the 19th century.

Breathtaking virtuosity; astonishing clarity; dazzling new insights.

Ronald Brautigam is one of the world’s most exciting players of historical keyboards. He’s famed for his exceptional performances of Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven – and for the bracing new perspectives he unveils on well-loved music, using instruments from the composers’ own times.

For his International Festival recital, Brautigam shines his searching spotlight on two later composers – Mendelssohn and Chopin. From Mendelssohn’s fiery Rondo capriccioso and sparkling Variations sérieuses to Chopin’s enormously powerful Polonaise-Fantasy, this is a recital to stimulate, captivate, and offer arrestingly fresh visions.
