The challenging pieces pair gentler melodies and moments of tenderness with fast-flowing passages and accomplished techniques.

British-born pianist Freddy Kempf has built a global reputation as a musical risk-taker and is hailed as a physical, explosive but profoundly sensitive performer.

The recital will be one of the first performances of the Cambridge Concert Series, which has become increasingly popular since its inception and will open in dramatic fashion this year with a concert from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

Tickets for Freddy Kempf’s recitcal are £20.50/£24.50, with student and under-16s tickets available at £12.50 and a 25 per cent discount for full orchestral series subscribers. Contact the Cambridge Corn Exchange box office on 01223 357851.
