Alistair McGowan 'expect a little Kane with the Grieg'
Alistair McGowan, best-known as a brilliant impressionist, will also display his
talent as a classical pianist when he visits King’s Lynn Festival next week.
Following the success of his recent piano album Alistair is bringing his brand-new
show to St George’s Guildhall on Monday (July 23) at 8pm.
He has told Festival organisers how he has created “a whole new way of
presenting classical music” – which may also feature England football captain
“It is possibly the first classical piano recital to intersperse romantic music with a
little comedy,” he said. “I’d be delighted if, as well as fans of classical music, we

“As well as having the chance to share my own version of the stories of
composers and the extraordinary music they write, I simply can’t have a roomful

“It should be the first show in which you can hear Harry Kane alongside the
music of George Gershwin, and Jacob Rees Mogg between pieces by Grieg.
“I hope this show will introduce people to some wonderful romantic music and
also demonstrate to anyone who harbours a secret ambition to take up music,
that it really is never too late!” he said.
