There’s a real treat in store for Mozart lovers this coming Saturday at 1.10pm in the Curtis Auditorium of the CIT Cork School of Music.  Admission free!!

Thirteen-year-old CSM student Kevin Jansson will be joined by the Cork School of Music Chamber Orchestra conducted by Geoffrey Spratt in a lunchtime performance of one of the real gems of the concerto repertoire - Mozart’s dramatic and greatly loved Piano Concerto No. 20 in D minor.

An exceptional talent and a charismatic performer, Kevin has earned many prizes, not only in the  CSM, but also at Feis Maitiu Cork and Feis Ceoil Dublin. Last December, he was selected to participate in a special artistic development programme supported by the Dublin International Piano Competition, the Finlay Programme for Gifted Young Pianists.

Kevin gave his first solo piano recital  at CSM in June 2013, performing works by Scarlatti, Haydn, Rachmaninov and Liszt.  This is a great opportunity to hear him again, playing one of the best loved and well known of Mozart’s wonderful piano concertos.  Kevin is a student of Mary Beattie and Conor Palliser.

The concert will also feature some star players from CIT Cork School of Music joining the orchestra to play one of Mozart’s  Serenades the Serenata Notturna in D.  Laure Giersch and David McElroy (violins), Ed Creedon (viola) and Sophie Butler (double bass) will make up the quartet that will toss musical ideas back and forth with the orchestra to give a flavour of the Carnival festival in 18th century Salzburg.

The concert is being conducted by the Director of CIT Cork School of Music Dr Geoffrey Spratt who has directed so many memorable performances in Cork over the years.
