The concert series Music in Ayr, promoted by Ayr Music Club, continued on Saturday evening with a recital by the young Romanian pianist, George Todica.

Throughout the programme, George's performance demonstrated flawless technique, superb attention to detail and outstanding control of tone, Ayr Music Club has said.

A spokesperson commented: "After a delightful and charming performance of one of Scarlatti's many keyboard sonatas, George launched into a transcription of a Partita by Bach.

"Here he admirably conveyed, not only the intricate detail of the music, but also the contrast in mood and style between the movements. This was followed by a dramatic and exciting rendition of a Sonata by Mozart.

"The first half of the concert ended with a powerful and deeply emotional performance of Chopin's "Andante Spianato and Grande Polonaise Brillante".

"Later in the evening the audience was enthralled by George's magnificent playing of Rachmaninov's "Variations on a Theme of Corelli". Again, he contrasted powerful and virtuosic playing with delicacy and intimacy.

"This delicacy continued in a moving performance of Ravel's "Pavane pour une Infante Defunte". The recital ended with a lively performance of a Bouree by the Romanian composer Enescu, but the audience's enthusiasm was rewarded with a Prelude by Rachmaninov as a delightful encore."

The next Music in Ayr Recital will be in Alloway Church Hall on November 18, when the guest artistes will be The Tim Kliphuis Trio.
