Ji Liu - Bach and Cage

The rising piano star tackles the maverick experimentalism of Cage and the formalism of Bach in what promises to be a thrilling and emotional evening.

His first album went straight to the top of the classical charts, and now's your chance to hear the rising superstar of the piano Ji Liu in the uniquely intimate setting of the Bristol Old Vic.

The music of JS Bach and John Cage may seem at odds - one is a master of formalism, the other a maverick experimentalist - but Liu's performance will draw these two disparate composers together in a unique way.

With Liu as a guide through these amazing works, this is sure to be a stellar concert that takes you on a journey from classical music's beginnings through to its 20th Century incarnations.
