Schubert at the Baxter with Gustavo Romero
7 January at 11:00 to 13 January at 21:00| R160 – R200
Following the success of his Beethoven Series, Mexican-American concert pianist Gustavo Romero returns to Cape Town for one week only in early January, to celebrate 225 years of Schubert by performing all his complete sonatas over 4 concerts.
Gustavo Romero has a stellar reputation for both the technical brilliance and interpretive depth of his playing, as well as his commitment to in-depth exploration of individual composers.
A native of San Diego, California, with heritage in Guadalajara, Mexico, Gustavo Romero discovered his love and gift for music at age five, when introduced to the piano of a neighbour. He started taking lessons, and gave his first public performances at the age of 10, while also winning his first piano competition. At age 13, he performed with the New York Philharmonic under Zubin Mehta.
Gustavo will once again partner with the Baxter Concert Hall, Ian-Burgess Simpson Pianos who will prepare the piano for each of the performances and the Cape Town Concert Series who will assist with logistics.
Booking is at Webtickets.
