DAVID CAMPIGNON AT TEATRU MANOEL
Belgian national David Campignon will be performing a piano recital on the 29th March at 8pm at Teatru Manoel.
David Campignon was born in Japan, where he studied piano with the late Puig-Roget and Yasukawa. At the age of fifteen, he moved to France, and studied piano performance at CNR de Saint Maur and won numerous prizes of excellency in piano performance.
Campignon is a winner of several competitions, and has received prices including 1st Prize with Absolute Majority in 2000 at Villa Franca Tirrena Sicily Italy, Demi-Finaliste Diploma of Honour status at Maria Canals Barcelone, amongst many other awards and recognitions.
After performing in Malta, music critic Albert Storace had written, “This interpreter showed that Schubert could make his point with the greatest of charm… He was the one who could make the piano sing. The other side of Schubert is there too: the dramatic passages, the pathos, lyrical warmth and high passion. Many different emotions went through a transition that developed according to bold rhythmic structure and always with Campignon’s assertive yet elegant, tasteful touch.”
On this occasion, David Campignon will be performing Pieces from Romeo and Juliet by Sergei Prokofieff, Chorale Prelude in F. Minor by Bach-Busoni, Sonata in G. Minor Didone Abbondonata by Clementi, Ballade in F. Major by Chopin, Variations by Brahms – Pagani, and Three Movements from Petrouschka by Stravinsky.
