Way back in September 1957, the 14 year old Allan Schiller played a Mozart piano concerto as part of the BBC Promenade Concerts at the Royal Albert Hall – a performance which was broadcast live on the ‘wireless’.
And now, a few days after celebrating his 80th birthday, yet still as enthusiastic, energetic and nimble-fingered, he is giving a solo recital at Salisbury’s Medieval Hall – a venue where he has played many times over the years as soloist or accompanying violin or cello or both. His programme for the early Saturday afternoon concert consists of works by Scarlatti, Mozart, Beethoven, Schumann, Chopin and Albeniz.
Plan for the day: into Salisbury (Park & Ride), a bit of shopping, a bite to eat in one of our excellent restaurants and then a stroll into the Cathedral Close and The Medieval Hall for a 2pm start to listen to about 70mins of superb live music – what could be better!
