Plumbago Arts is proud to announce a special event on Saturday 30 October 2004, featuring the outstanding musician, Ferenc Rados. For many years Ferenc Rados taught piano and chamber music at the Liszt Academy in Budapest, his hometown. Musicians and chamber groups from all over the world still travel to seek his advice, and his former pupils include Andras Schiff, Zoltan Kocsis and Deszo Ranki. Recognized as one of the outstanding music teachers of our time, he is renowned for his laser-like intellect, his idiosyncratic use of metaphor and his profound grasp of musical logic. Now in his seventieth year, he spent September as guest coach at Prussia Cove (Cornwall), the international chamber music forum, and will be in London for the last week in October when he will be teaching small groups as well as holding a master class at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. It will be a great honour to welcome him to the Department of Music at King’s College London where he will conduct a public master class with the Dante String Quartet (Krysia Osostowicz, Matthew Truscott, Judith Busbridge and Pierre Doumenge) on repertory that is likely to include Beethoven’s String Quartet in A minor, Op. 132, and the Second String Quartet of Bela Bartók. The event will be held in the Viscount St. David’s Room (6c), situated opposite the chapel in the Strand building of KCL, from 10.00am to 1.00pm, and is open to all free of charge.
