It's been almost two years since I started blogging in Budleigh and one of the major musical events that I wrote about was the concert by internationally known pianist Peter Donohoe, given as part of the highly popular St Peter's Music series.

Peter Donohoe has such an impressive musical pedigree that I'm going to refer you to rather than type out all his achievements again.

It was an amazing performance and St Peter's Church is certain to be packed out, as it was in 2009.

This time he is playing:

French Suite No 5 in G major, BWV 816 J S Bach
Drei Klavierstuck Op 117 Brahms
Piano Sonata in A flat major Op 110 Beethoven
Sonata (1926) Bartok
Ballade No 3 Chopin
Polonaise Fantasie Chopin
Andante Spianato e Gran' Polonaise Brilliante Chopin

The concert is on Tuesday 29 March 2011 at 8.00 pm.

On this occasion Peter Donohoe will also give a pre-concert talk about the music in the church at 7.00 pm. This 40-minute talk is FREE.

Tickets are £15 (half-price for full-time students) For information on how to obtain tickets click on There is wheelchair access into the church.
