The International Interview Concerts are unique in the South East and exclusive to Worthing. You meet the top-class young role-model artiste in a performing and a conversational situation. It’s set ‘In The Round’ with unreserved seating so everyone is much nearer the action than is possible in an ordinary concert hall.
It’s relaxed, intimate, and therefore richly connective between performer, interviewer and audience. It’s the same among the audience themselves and they can ask their own questions. The café-bar is part of the ambience. So are surprises! There is a special new Mystery Music Spot this time. Children come for £1.
Rhythmie Wong, 27, is from Hong Kong. Playing solo she set alight the Sussex International Piano Competition in May, then played a Chopin Concerto with Worthing Symphony Orchestra. Her solo artistry and virtuosity in Ravel’s famous ‘La Valse’ added up, for one expert listener, to the best piano playing he had heard in 10 years. Another described her Haydn performance as masterly and already of world rank.
Discover Rhythmie Wong now for yourself: the artiste and the person. She will chat in interview and, in between, play some enchanting items of Chinese piano music, along with the sensational ‘La Valse’, Albeniz’s beguiling scents and rhythms of Spain in his ‘Iberia’ Book 1, spellbinding music from Stravinsky’s beloved ballet ‘The Firebird’, and that cheeky keep-’em-guessing Haydn Sonata in Eb (Hob XVI:52).
