NIKO­LAI DEMI­DENKO (PI­ANO) Mar­ket Place, Ar­magh Fri 8pm £10 048-37521821

Rus­sian pi­anist Niko­lai Demi­denko was a favourite with au­di­ences at the Belfast Fes­ti­val long be­fore his ca­reer took off in the West. He’s back in the North this week for a typ­i­cally idio­syn­cratic all-Chopin pro­gramme in Ar­magh on Fri­day, when he sneaks in two rarely-heard ron­dos along with two polon­aises (the Polon­aiseFan­taisie and the An­dante spi­anato and Grand Polon­aise), the mes­meris­ing Bar­carolle and the great Sonata in B mi­nor.
