MUSICAL MAESTRO: Acclaimed Romanian pianist to perform in Rickmansworth classical concert

 Published on: 8th November 2022   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

Verona Maier, one of Romania’s most distinguished pianists, is to perform two of Johann Sebastian Bach’s best-loved compositions at a concert in Rickmansworth on Wednesday, November 16.

Verona, who is vice-rector of the National University of Music in Bucharest, first performed for Three Rivers Music Society (TRMS) in October 2021. She made such an impression that she was immediately invited to return this November.

Although much of her life has been devoted to the piano and teaching, Verona is also a highly regarded harpsichordist and organist and is often asked to provide music advice for film production companies. 

At her solo recital on November 16, she will play Bach’s Partita No. 1, the first of a set of six keyboard suites composed between 1725 and 1731. 

The concert’s second Bach work, his Fifth French Dance Suite, also dates from the 1720s. It is regarded as the most cheerful of his six French dance suites.

Then, Verona will perform two miniatures by George Enescu, one of the greatest musicians that Romania has produced. 

She will also perform eight other miniatures to introduce her audience to the music of Romanian composers of the 20th and 21st century who are less well known than Enescu.

The concert will be held in the Baptist Church High Street, Rickmansworth, WD3 1EH. It will begin at 7.30pm. Tickets are £16 at the door, and include a free concert programme, pre-concert talk (from 7.15pm) and refreshment.

There are reduced prices for TRMS members/patrons and advance online booking. There is free entry to under-25s.
