Elena Kiseleva piano recital

Elena Kiseleva piano recital at
St. Peter Mancroft Church
On Saturday I attended the next in the Mancroft Music Summer Recitals 2011 series at St. Peter Mancroft Church, Norwich. This time featuring one of the stars of this year's Norfolk and Norwich Festival, pianist Elena Kiseleva who after completing her studies at the Central Special Music School of the Moscow Conservatory moved to London in 2004.

The programme for the recital was Sonata in C minor K 457 - Mozart, Novelletten Op.21 No.8 (F sharp minor) - Schumann, From 12 Lieder von Franz Schubert S.558 No.2 Auf dem Wasser zu Singen - Liszt and Rigoletto Paraphrase de Concert S.434 (A transcription of the quartet from Act 3 of Verdi's Rigoletto) - Liszt.

Elena gave a wonderful performance that delighted everyone in attendance. Since the start of the Mancroft Music Recitals programme they have always wanted to put on a piano recital and due to a kind benefactor it was made possible.
