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

Harry Kane!

“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

were able to encourage people who may not know about classical piano to come

and enjoy some of the incredible music written (and still being written) for the

piano.

“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

of people and not have some fun with my current favourite impressions too.

“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.
