Our Festival Artists present an evening of music from Bach to the Beatles.

About this event

Celebrated British experimental musician, pianist John Tilbury has created vivid (what he describes as ‘unpretentious’) transcriptions of these beautiful Beatles tracks for solo piano. This is the Irish premiere of a selection of these irresistible songs including Blackbird, Back in the USSR, Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds and All You Need is Love.

This set is paired with violinist Dmitri Sitkovetsky’s now celebrated transcription of Bach’s keyboard masterpiece ‘Goldberg Variations’, bringing together the combined talents of 3 of Europe’s renowned chamber musicians.

Please do also come to the 7.00pm Prelude Performance and support the wonderful young musicians of Music Generation Kerry String Project.
