Things to see and do
Glynde Place wins Restoration Award

Glynde Place are pleased to announce that musicians in the BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists scheme will again be performing at the house for their 2022 Concert Series.

The Glynde Place Concert Series returns after two years absence due to Covid-19 with an exciting selection of artists and music. The BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists scheme helps to develop exceptional young musicians who are on the cusp of their international careers. The Glynde Place concert series gives Sussex audiences the unique opportunity to see some of these artists performing in the magnificent setting of Glynde Place, an Elizabethan manor situated on the Downs near Lewes.

On Saturday, April 23rd the outstanding pianist, Alexander Gadjiev, plays a programme consisting of works by Chopin and Schumann. He began studies when five years old, giving his first concerto performance (of Haydn’s C major Concerto) when nine. He went on to win many international awards, among which were the 1st prize in the ninth Hamamatsu International Piano Competition 2015, the 2018 Monte-Carlo World Piano Masters Competition and, more recently, 2nd prize and the Kristian Zimerman Prize at the 28th Chopin Competition. He became a BBC Radio 3 NGA in 2019.

Formed in 2017 at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, the Mithras Piano Trio studied with leading professors and received coaching and masterclasses from top performers such as András Keller, and the quartets Endellion, Takács, Danish and Emerson. The Trio has been praised for “their exquisite phrasing, full-blooded commitment and bold, passionate colours”. They have performed at major London venues including the Queen Elizabeth Hall and Purcell Room. They were appointed BBC Radio 3 NGA’s in 2021. Their Glynde concert takes place on Saturday, 14th May, playing works by Beethoven, Ran and Dvorak.

The last concert on Saturday, 25th June features trumpeter, Simon Höfele, winner of the most important German classical music prize, Opus Klassik 2020 and already established internationally as a leading player of the younger generation. He has played as soloist with leading international orchestras and given recitals throughout Europe and the UK. His repertoire is wide, performing the familiar trumpet works ranging from Telemann and Mozart to Jolivet and Zimmermann. He will be accompanied by Frank Dupree, himself a winner of the 2018 Opus Klassik Award for Concerto recording of the Year.

For the three evenings of 23 April, 14 May and 25 June tickets holders can enjoy the concerts (7pm start) and are welcome to picnic in the grounds (from 5pm), with beautiful views across the Weald and South Downs. Seating is limited, so early booking is advised. Book online at www.glynde.co.uk/glynde-place/concert-series
