Great Yarmouth's international concert series continues at the Hippodrome on Sunday, March 21, with a visit by renowned Russian-born pianist Nikolai Demidenko.

The concert will feature three of Beethoven's most recognisable son-atas, including F�r Therese. Often known as 'F�r Elise', it is believed the piece was mis-transcribed as Beethoven's handwriting was notoriously bad.

Nikolai will also perform the composer's highly popular Moonlight Sonata.

In the second half of the programme, the audience will be able to see why Nikolai is considered one of the world's finest Chopin interpreters. He frequently travels to Poland and across Europe to perform the great composer's work at festivals and will be performing three pieces, culminating in the grand Sonata in B flat minor.

'The series is gaining momentum after an outstanding performance from the Czech National Symphony last month.
