International pianist to perform with SPO

Stupendous music at a regional venue!

Suffolk audiences are guaranteed a world class performance when Israeli pianist Ariel Lanyi plays

Mozart with the Suffolk Philharmonic Orchestra at The Apex, Bury St Edmunds, on Sunday 16 July.

One of the world’s fastest-rising stars of classical music, Ariel has been selected by the Young

Classical Artists Trust for a series of unique performing opportunities around the world which

includes this debut performance with the county’s fully professional Suffolk Philharmonic Orchestra.

Ariel will play Mozart’s Piano concerto No.20 – one of only two of Mozart’s piano concertos in a

minor key but which concludes with a triumphant change to the major key. The concert also includes Beethoven’s Symphony No.1 and the overture to the opera “Amadis” by JC Bach.

Leslie Olive, conductor of Suffolk Philharmonic Orchestra, said “The Royal Albert Hall is not the only

place you can hear stupendous playing this summer, as our two previous concerts in the Celebration

Sundays series at The Apex have proved. The final concert in the series on Sunday 16 th July promises

to be every bit as outstanding and memorable. We are all hugely looking forward to hearing the

wonderfully gifted Ariel Lanyi playing Mozart with us on that day. For a Proms quality performance,

don’t miss it.”

Born in Jerusalem in 1997, award-winning Ariel completed his studies at the Royal Academy of Music

in London and now performs internationally as a soloist and within chamber groups. As soloist Ariel

has appeared with orchestras in Israel, the UK, Argentina and the USA with highlights including the

Israel Philharmonic, City of Birmingham Symphony and Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestras. In

2021 Linn Records released his recording of music by Schubert to critical acclaim.

‘Evolutions’ featuring Ariel Lanyi takes place at The Apex, Bury St Edmunds on Sunday 16 th July at

4.00pm. Tickets are on sale now from £26 (plus booking fee).
