Galin Ganchev has been stunning his audiences since he joined Shrewsbury School in 2010, and his previous recitals here have received standing ovations. An excerpt from Martin Knox's review of Galin's performance of Grieg's Piano Concerto in A Minor in July 2011 is copied below:
"In his concerto, Grieg had a wonderful tale to tell, and in Galin Ganchev, we have an inspiring narrator, whose intuitive sense of where he is and where he is going at any moment leads to climaxes which are beautifully anticipated and gloriously brought off. Paradoxically, the greater the difficulty, the more he appears to be at ease, his hands floating across the keys with seemingly effortless precision. His reserves of power are phenomenal, too, and just when one thinks that he has reached full volume, he finds another level and floods the hall with sound."
In July 2011, Galin was only 14 years old.
Do not miss out on the opportunity to see Galin performing once again in the intimate setting of the Alington Hall.
