Alasdair Beatson conjures-up the spirit of Vienna in a rich and festive programme of piano music, written in or inspired by the extravagant and colourful city: noble waltzes of Schubert and Ravel; miniatures of Schoenberg that capture glimpses of the more radical.

The recital includes a rare performance of the third piano sonata of Korngold, the Viennese composer who was to go on to conquer Hollywood as a composer for film. It ends with Schumann's suite "Carnival-time in Vienna" which captures some of the city's infamous hedonism and high-jinks.
