Since winning the gold medal at the 1986 Tchaikovsky International Piano Competition in Moscow, Barry Douglas has enjoyed a major international career, combining roles as Artistic Director of Camerata Ireland – the all-Ireland chamber orchestra he founded 20 years ago to nurture young talent – and the Clandeboye Festival with a busy international touring schedule that has seen him perform with many of the world’s leading orchestras.
Spanning everything from Beethoven to Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition (which he has recorded to great acclaim), this eclectic programme is the perfect showcase for his extraordinary talent. Don’t miss it!
‘an artist who thinks the music through in his own way, and who has the technique and confidence to leave you thinking afresh’ The Guardian
‘Douglas superbly draws out the contrasts within each piece ... his tone is a deep velvet cushion, the legatos full of affection and the rhythms galvanised with great energy’ BBC Music Magazine
