I’ve received word that Valentina Lisitsa, watched by millions on youtube, is about to give an unscheduled Liszt recital here
in a 12th century village church on the outskirts of London. St Mary’s, Perivale,
is a popular venue with young artists trying out new rep on a fine concert grand. Val will be there this Wednesday at 7.30. Tickets are £10 at the door. No on-line sales. Critics are distinctly unwelcomed.
I can’t even advise you how to get there, having only ever been driven in by car. It’s on the western edge of London. Go. Val’s worth it.
