Gifted young St Albans pianist Julian Trevelyan is giving the lunchtine recital at a city centre church next Wednesday, April 27.

The programme at St Peter’s Church will begin with Robert Schumann’s Humoreske, the title of which refers to a genre of romantic music characterised by pieces with fanciful humour in the sense of mood rather than wit.

Julian will also play Claude Debussy’s Images, the first three of which were for the piano with the fourth for orchestra.

Julian won the prestigious Long-Thibaud international piano competition in Paris last October when he was 16 and following his success, he will be playing in both St Petersburg and Budapest this year as well as across France.

Born and lives in St Albans, he was also a chorister in the Cathedral Choir and still sings there as a tenor.

The free concert with a retiring collection in aid of Rennie Grove Hospice Care starts at 1pm.
