Between Monday 14 – Thursday 23 August 2023, Chetham’s International Piano Summer School brings world class and legendary musicians to a vibrant, supportive community in central Manchester. Alongside lectures, open lessons and opportunities to develop new skills, you can discover a daily programme of recitals from world-class performers.

Day Nine Performances

A Young Artist’s Piano Recital – Tyler Hay 1.45- 2.25pm

“He throws himself like a man possessed at thunderous double-octaves, whirling arpeggios and prestissimo scales, with technique to spare.” Pianist Magazine (5 stars)

Tyler has become a virtuoso pianist who enjoys tackling some of the most demanding works in the repertoire. He has performed Rachmaninoff’s 2nd Sonata at Wigmore Hall and Cadogan Hall, Scriabin’s 5th Sonata at the Southbank’s Purcell Room and Ravel’s Concerto for Left Hand Alone at the Queen Elizabeth Hall . Most recently, Tyler won first prize in the keyboard section of the Royal Overseas League Competition in February 2016 and also went on to win first prize in the Liszt Society Competition in November, later that year. CDs of Liszt’s piano music and John Ogdon’s unpublished works were both released in the Spring of 2018 under the Piano Classics label and received superb critical acclaim. A new album consisting of Kalkbrenner’s Etudes op 143 is due to be released in the summer of 2019 and this will be the first commercial recording made on a modern pianoforte of these highly inventive and attractive works.

A Lecture by Murray McLachlan, 5.15pm

‘The joys and wonders of exploring  unknown repertoire’

The piano repertoire is an ever-expanding universe. Though the core repertoire and masterpieces from the past remain essential for listeners and performers alike, it is deeply inspiration and fulfilling to embrace neglected repertoire when it stirs a passion within. This talk looks at some of the wonderful but sadly neglected repertoire that can and has done just that.
