Petworth Festival has been privileged to witness many fine concerts by leading international pianists but few have been more exciting and as intense as Ji Liu’s in 2016. The Festival welcomes the young Chinese pianist back for a sequel with tickets expected to be hot property. His programme celebrates the music of Debussy, whose centenary is celebrated in 2018 and follows the worldwide release earlier this year of his Classic FM album, Fire and Water.
