This artist achieved great success in the 1972 Leeds International Piano Competition. Born in Brazil in 1951, she began her musical studies with Arnaldo Estrella and Esther Scliar and was later a pupil at the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatoire. Linda Bustani has been awarded several international prizes in Lisbon, Rio, Bratislava and also won the National Piano Competition in Brazil. She has been described as a veritable revelation of interpretative intelligence, of perfect use of technique and creative imagination, miraculous in such a young musician.
We are delighted to announce a return visit to the Peak Music Society of the Aeolian Quartet, as they gave our opening concert in October 1968. This quartet has for some time been regarded as one of the finest ever formed in Britain. They have travelled extensively and have taken part in all the major British Festivals. All the artists were well known as chamber music players before they formed the Aeolian Quartet.
Gerald Moore‘s name is as well-known throughout the world as that of any eminent virtuoso pianist or violinist. His distinguished career as an accompanist culminated in a Farewell Concert at the Royal Festival Hall when he was supported by Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, Elisabeth Schwarzkopf and Victoria de los Angeles. Mr. Moore does not now normally perform outside the Southern Regions but we hope that he will make an exception in March. He prefers, however, not to commit himself to a definite concert at this early stage and we therefore hope to make an announcement confirming this recital later in the year.
This quintet (flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, horn) was formed in 1969 by gifted young artists from Great Britain, Austria and the USA, all of whom are now resident in London. They have given many successful concerts throughout the country, as well as in London, where they appear regularly at the South Bank Concert Halls. They have a keen interest in contemporary music, having given first performances of several works and in recent concerts have been joined by other artists to present many unusual chamber works. The quintet has given lecture-recitals which have been enthusiastically received by audiences of all ages.
