Acclaimed Pianist Emilie Capulet at The Gateway
02 Oct 2023

The internationally acclaimed French concert pianist Professor Emilie Capulet will be performing at The Gateway in Shrewsbury on Thursday, October 5th at 7.30pm.

The 2023/2024 music season is well underway in Shrewsbury, with some stellar performances coming our way! We enjoyed the famous Dante Quartet at St Alkmund's last week in the first of an exciting 40th Anniversary series of concerts from The Shropshire Music Trust

And now, coming to The Gateway Arts Centre this Thursday, October 5th is the award-winning International concert pianist, lecturer, musicologist and writer Dr Emilie Capulet.  Emilie's programme for this performance includes pieces by Beethoven, Haydn and the mighty Liszt's Piano Sonata in B Minor.  Emilie Capulet has recently taken up a new position as BMus Programme Leader at the extremely prestigious Trinity Laban Conservatoire in London. 

As a lecture-recitalist, accompanist and chamber musician, she has a portfolio of national and international performances in the UK, Europe, Latin America, the USA, Canada and Asia.

She has been broadcast on BBC Radio 3, Radio Canada, France Musique and many more and has appeared on Sky News as their classical music expert. Emilie has recently released the premiere recording of Richard Lambert’s solo piano, chamber music and song cycles on the Quartz label, as well as the first recording of the complete solo piano music of the French-Corsican composer Henri Tomasi (1901-1971) on the Calliope label, which was awarded a ‘Grand Frisson’ by Audiophile Magazine and ffff in Pizzicato Magazine. She has also recorded Beethoven and Chopin for BNP. 

This Thursday's concert will be a rare opportunity to watch a world class musician in such an intimate setting as the Gateway in Shrewsbury, which for lovers of solo piano works, will be absolutely mesmerising to witness such a high level of virtuosic performance, viewed at such close quarters.  The recital will be performed on the Gateway's own beautiful old Steinway grand piano.
