Cheltenham Festival 2022: Alexander Gadjiev

The final live concert of the week showcasing BBC Radio 3's New Generation Artists. Today, Alexander Gadjiev performs piano pieces by Debussy, Scriabin and Chopin.

A final concert from the Pittville Pump Room in Cheltenham showcasing BBC Radio 3's New Generation Artists. Today, pianist Alexander Gadjiev pairs Debussy with two other composers, all three of whom delighted in taking piano music to new and exciting places. Many of the works in his programme require sophisticated technical gymnastics, but always in pursuit of the beguiling harmonies, exotic colours and enchanting musical stories. Presented by Ian Skelly.
