Top pianist is back in concert
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.
