Sergei Babayan piano

Expect ‘playing that verges on the peerless’ (Music Web International) from Armenian-American pianist Sergei Babayan, whose recital at the Holywell Music Room presents a delectable menu of songs without words. Traversing his own transcriptions and those of Rachmaninov, Keith Jarrett and more, Babayan will lead us through the worlds of lieder (Schubert, Hindemith), chanson (Hahn, Bizet) and romance (Rachmaninov, Kreisler) to the Great American Songbook (Gershwin) — all with the apparently effortless lyrical style with which Babayan has made himself indispensable.
