Finghin Collins

Finghin Collins returns to Belltable with his latest recital

 

After months of inactivity, pianist Finghin Collins takes to the road again this winter, embarking on an extensive national recital tour which he has named after one of the major pieces in the programme – Schubert’s Wanderer Fantasy. This is Schubert’s most demanding work for piano solo, which Schubert named after one of his own songs “Der Wanderer” – music from the song appears in each of the linked movements of the piece.
