A concert good enough for royalty

A concert good enough for royalty

Valeria Kurbatova is a multi-award-winning harpist who has performed for King Charles as well as rock royalty, in the shape of the Rolling Stones.

She has played in the Royal Albert Hall, Kensington Palace, the Barbican and the Palace of Westminster. But on Monday, November 13, she and flautist Daniel Ephgrave will be performing in a rather more modest venue – albeit one with excellent acoustics -- Rickmansworth Baptist Church.

Daniel is also an award-winning musician and was a prize-winner in the British Flute Society competitions in both 2020 and 2021. Like Valeria, he often plays with some of the UK’s leading orchestras and ensembles.

Valeria and Daniel have a particularly wide repertoire that spans classical, folk and contemporary music. At their Three Rivers Music Society concert they will not only be performing music by well-known composers such as Bach, Tchaikovsky, Debussy and Ravel but offering their audience a taste of the tango, courtesy of Argentina’s Astor Piazzolla.

They also plan to showcase two works by contemporary composers – the brilliant young Slovenian pianist Blaz Pucihar, and Jeff Atmajian, an American composer who is best known as an arranger and orchestrator of film music.

The concert will be held at the Baptist Church in High Street, Rickmansworth WD3 1EH. 7.30pm start. Tickets £16 at the door (including programme and refreshments). Reduced price for members. Free entry for under-25s.
