A Petworth first for the 40th anniversary festival: after the success of his recent piano album released through Sony Classical, the popular comedian and impressionist Alistair McGowan premieres a brand new show which brings together all his talents. He will play tracks from the album and some other short classic piano pieces from Gershwin to Grieg, Mompou to Mendelssohn, Satie to Schubert. In between the pieces, he will talk a little about history of each piece, the composer and his own connection to the music.
Expect a lot of beautiful music (with the odd mistake!), some interesting stories and a sprinkling of his trademark impressions.
