performing arts

Art paintings created simultaneously with top-level music performance is the format of the next International Interview Concert at St Paul’s, Worthing, on Sunday 7th July (3.30pm for 4pm). It is entitled ‘Images in Sound’. Internationally-acclaimed David Freud will appear in this event as one of three invited painters. They will be responding in their own different styles on canvases to the stimulus of great Russian piano music played white-hot live by two visiting international artistes. The musicians and painters will be interviewed. The audience will watch, listen, enjoy the results, ask their own questions, and some of the painters’ work will be on sale. Italian pianist Francesco Comito will play Mussorgsky’s famous ‘Pictures at an Exhibition’ in its sparkling, startling original form for solo piano. Then Anna Bulkina, the Russian from Rostov, will perform Rachmaninov’s Opus 39 set of Études Tableaux. In this excitingly descriptive and often virtuosic music, Francesco will make his Worthing debut and Anna her second return since her successful 2015 Sussex International Piano Competition. Anna’s solo career crosses Europe, Russia and China. They first presented ‘Images in Sound’ last year in Rio de Janerio, with Brazilian painters. “Irresistible bravery and expressivity – she caught the audience’s breath with magical effect, as though improvised” is one example of reviewing about Anna Bulkina in the German Press. Italians write of Comito the Calabrian: “One of our most promising pianists. His technique always serves the music, never banal, always daring”. Tickets available from St Paul’s café counter or seetickets.com. The Interview Concerts and Worthing Symphony Society will take Francesco and Anna into three Worthing primary schools during the preceding week, presenting music connected with folk tales and fairy stories in a project is funded by Worthing Community Chest. Children will attend ‘Images in Sound’ – and indeed can attend any Interview Concert. 50
