An exciting young artiste from Kazakhstan will return to Worthing via Moscow Conservatoire on Friday, May 9.

Rabiga Dyussembayeva will give the next Worthing Symphony Society solo event at The Denton, in the town where she won second prize in the 2013 Sussex International Piano Competition Final with the Worthing Symphony Orchestra.

But not before going back to her previous seat of learning, Moscow Conservatoire, to give an April concert at the world famous music establishment where Tchaikovsky and other great names taught and which granted her a rare scholarship to the Royal Northern College of Music.

Almaty-born Rabiga will give her own self-titled ‘Fairytale Carnaval’ Interview Concert, and will be following the footsteps of Arta Arnicane and Olga Paliy who were invited to play in the previous two of these compellingly intimate new events.

In this second visit of this series to The Denton, the interviewer will again be Timothy J. Chick.

Having played Prokofiev’s 3rd Piano Concerto No 3 in the Competition final, she has chosen to give Beethoven’s Sonata No 10 in G, Liszt’s transcription of two Schumann’s songs Spring Night and Dedication, then three of the six Fairy tales by Russian piano master Medtner, and finally Schumann’s Carnaval.

Schumann’s popular 20-part piece will climax the concert colourfully with its pictures of masked commedia dell’arte characters such as Harlequin, Pierrot, Pantalon and Columbine.

In the tradition of this innovative series, with seating at cabaret tables, drinks and beverages available at the bar and cafe, Rabiga will also answer questions from the audience.

The Fairytale Interview Concert will start at the earlier time of 6.45pm. Box Office 01903 206 206 (tickets £10 and concessions).

Other Interview Concerts this year will be with pianists Olga Stezhko (Russia) on October 2 and Jessica Zhu (USA) on November 20.
