Hastings backed a winner!

The word is that this year’s Hastings  International Piano Concerto Competition surpassed the Leeds International Piano Competition in the quality of the entrants – (Leeds is usually regarded as the ‘brand leader’ in the UK). This must be largely due to the brilliant young winner of this year’s Hastings competition who will be returning to Hastings only in July to perform a special summer recital in the grounds of Fairlight Hall, writes HOT’s Chris Cormack.

Hastings tunes up for piano competition

last contact with a piano was a series of shared 15-minute lessons in 1970s suburbia, but he will be heading off to the White Rock Theatre next week to sample the pick of the contemporary classical crop.

Frozen out at Fairlight Hall

The thing about summer in the UK is that we’ve all got this idealised picture of balmy afternoons and evenings, strawberries and cream, cricket matches in the heat etc. – whereas the truth is very different.  People moan about climate change but I have distinct recollections of watching opera in country house venues years ago with the rain lashing down on the marquee – even one occasion at Glyndebourne when everyone was picnicking on the covered walkways like stranded refugees in dinner jackets, writes Antony Mair.

It’s a few days after the event, but the joys of the Hastings International Piano Concerto Competition are still vivid in my memory of a wonderful evening last Saturday.  Hastings is not great when it comes to classical music – events are comparatively few and far between – but this was well worth the wait.  A packed house at the White Rock Theatre listened spellbound to three immensely talented finalists, each accompanied by the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, writes Antony Mair
