David Helfgott brings his inimitable style of performing to Chopin, Liszt and Rachmaninov.
Helfgott has had a career-long relationship with Rachmaninov’s Third Piano Concerto, and this performance presents a rare opportunity to hear it in its version for two pianos, also performed by Rhodri Clarke.
Helfgott's life inspired the Academy Award-winning film Shine (1996). He has triumphed over adversity to become one of the most successful pianists of his generation.
