Steinway Inaugural Concert

Peter Donohoe

Alexander Scriabin – Sonata no 2 in G sharp minor
Maurice Ravel – Miroirs
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – Sonata no 8 in A minor, K310
Franz Schubert – Sonata in A major, D959

In December 2017 the University of Leeds School of Music acquired All-Steinway School status, investing in 27 Steinway and Sons pianos. This celebratory event features the new Steinway concert grand piano in Clothworkers Centenary Concert Hall in a performance by internationally renowned pianist and Steinway Artist Peter Donohoe.

Since his unprecedented success as Silver Medal winner of the 1982 7th International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow, Peter Donohoe has built an extraordinary world-wide career, encompassing a huge repertoire and over forty years’ experience as a pianist, as well as continually exploring many other avenues in music-making. He is acclaimed as one of the foremost pianists of our time, for his musicianship, stylistic versatility and commanding technique.

I cannot imagine a living pianist capable of improving upon Donohoe’s outstanding artistry
