The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - MOTORSTODAY -

THIS week­end’s Rut­land Sin­fo­nia con­cert will in­clude the re­turn of a famed pi­anist.

Mar­garet Finger­hut last ap­peared with Rut­land Sin­fo­nia in 2001, when Barry Collett, the con­duc­tor, re­tired af­ter 25 years.

She has since ap­peared with the London Sym­phony Or­ches­tra, London Phil­har­monic Or­ches­tra, Phil­har­mo­nia Or­ches­tra, Royal Phil­har­monic Or­ches­tra, BBC Phil­har­monic, Scot­tish Sym­phony Or­ches­tra and the London Mozart Play­ers in ma­jor venues such as the Royal Fes­ti­val Hall, Royal Al­bert Hall and the Bar­bican as a con­certo soloist.

She re­turns to Oakham School Chapel for to­mor­row evening’s con­cert, per­form­ing Saint-saens Pi­ano Con­certo No 2.

Mar­garet is re­garded as one of the most po­etic pi­anists of her gen­er­a­tion, who has cap­ti­vated au­di­ences in many coun­tries with her imag­i­na­tively de­signed recital pro­grammes, A World of Pi­ano Themes.

She has given mas­ter­classes in the USA, Canada and China and has also been on the jury for many com­pe­ti­tions, in­clud­ing the BBC Mu­si­cian of the Year.

Rut­land Sin­fo­nia is cel­e­brat­ing its 35th an­niver­sary.
