THE next concert in the current Morpeth Music Society season is a recital by acclaimed pianist James Lisney.

He made his Wigmore Hall debut in 1986 and has since enjoyed a flourishing career, which includes regular collaborations with musicians such as Dame Emma Kirkby and his daughter Joy, who is a professional cellist.

His performance in Morpeth begins with the first book of Mendelssohn’s Songs without words, followed by Debussy’s impressionistic Estampes.

Mr Lisney will then move on to Chopin’s Andante Spianato, which was composed to complement the existing Grande Polonaise brillante, and conclude with Schubert’s reflective piano sonata D.959.

The concert is being held on Thursday, November 8 in Morpeth Methodist Church, Howard Terrace, from 7.30pm.

Tickets are priced £12 for adults and are free for students under 18. They are available from the society on 01670 513369, Morpeth Tourist Information Centre in the Chantry, or the Methodist Church.
