A ROMANIAN solo pianist is the next to grace the stage as part of the Grantham Music Club’s current programme.

Alexandra Dariescu was recommended by a music club member who attended one of her concerts, and was quickly booked in to perform at the Priory Ruskin Academy (Manthorpe site).

She will perform her programme of music, which features Beethoven, Schumann, Chopin and Debussy, on Wednesday at 7.30pm.

Born in Romania, Alexandra went on to study at the Royal Northern College of Music, where she won a host of major prizes and awards.

She has since established a reputation as a first-rate pianist, playing with major orchestras and at many a well-known venue.

Over the last year she has appeared as soloist with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Sinfonia ViVA, Northern Chamber Orchestra, European Union Chamber Orchestra and the International Orchestra for Freedom at St John’s Smith Square.

She has given recitals at Wigmore Hall, Barbican, the City of London, Bath and Ribble Valley Festivals, and in July was resident at the Verbier Festival Academy.

Tickets to the concert in Grantham are £10 (£8) for non-members and £1 for students.
