Roy Howat plays French piano music this Friday

Roy Howat

Internationally-renowned pianist and Kingsman Roy Howat will play a selection of French music in the Hall this Friday (10 February).

Roy is particularly well known for his interpretation of French music. He is one of few British artists who is regularly invited to teach and play at French Conservatoires and on French radio, and in 2009 he published the critically-acclaimed book The Art of French Piano Music. The programme will also include music by Chopin:


  • Chabrier: Aubade; Mélancolie, Idylle
  • Chopin: Nocturne in E op 62 no 2; Waltz in A flat op 42
  • Debussy: Reflets dans l’eau; L'isle joyeuse
  • Debussy: Preludes, Book 2 (complete)

The concert starts at 9pm. Tickets cost £12 (students under 25 free, on the door only) and are available from the Shop at King’s, King's Parade, Cambridge (tel: 01223 769 340; email: ).

Roy will also be giving a pre-concert talk at 7.45pm in the Chetwynd Room (free admission), and a piano masterclass from 1.30 to 4.30pm the following day (Saturday 11 February) in the Keynes Hall. Observers are welcome.

This concert is part of the Concerts at King's series.
