Murray McLachlan is Chetham’s current Head of Keyboard, as well as an alumnus, parent, Chair of the European Piano Teachers’ Association UK and Director and Founder of Chetham’s International Piano Summer School and Festival for Pianists. Since making his professional performance debut aged 21, he has won numerous accolades for his recordings of Beethoven, Prokofiev, Ronald Stevenson and more, and has appeared as a soloist with most of the UK’s leading orchestras.
Murray continues the Striking Gold series with all three of Brahms’ Piano Sonatas, written within a year from 1852-53, whilst Brahms was only 19 and 20 years old. In the extensive Third Sonata Brahms draws heavily on Beethoven, with motives from the earlier composer’s Fifth Symphony recurring throughout its five movements.
