Chopin Études Op.25
Ravel Miroirs
Stravinsky Three Movements from Petrushka

Winner of multiple piano awards, with a dazzling technique and probing, revelatory musicianship, Beatrice Rana is one of the most talked-about young pianists around today. With her muscular energy and her tender sense of poetry, she’s been compared with the piano greats of the past – but with a sense of freedom and spontaneity that marks her out as a very special talent.

She brings a sparkling programme of virtuoso showpieces for her International Festival debut. Playful, fiery and effortlessly graceful, Chopin’s Op 25 Études contain some of the most challenging, thrilling piano music ever written. Ravel paints evocative musical pictures of birds, seascapes and pealing bells in his shimmering Miroirs, while the three movements that Stravinsky transcribed for piano from his ballet Petrushka crackle with vibrant colour and electrifying energy.

This concert will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 3.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Edinburgh International Festival: Beatrice Rana are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
