One of the country’s leading classical pianists will perform masterworks by Frederic Chopin at a concert in Rickmansworth on Monday, December 4.

Tim Horton, who has played at the Wigmore Hall and the Royal Festival Hall, will also introduce his audience to compositions by Chopin’s fellow Pole, Karol Szymanowski.

Though still relatively unknown, Szymanowski is highly regarded by his fellow musicians. Sir Simon Rattle has described him as “one of the greatest composers of the 20th century”.

The programme will include two nocturnes and four scherzos by Chopin and three pieces by Szymanowski that were inspired by legendary figures: Scheherazade, the Arabian Nights storyteller; Tristan, the doomed lover of Isolde; and Don Juan, the legendary Spanish womanizer.

The concert will be held at the Baptist Church, High Street, Rickmansworth WD3 1EH. 7.30pm start. Tickets at door: £16 (including programme and refreshments). Free entry for under 25s.
