WHILE Peter Donohoe's performace of Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No 1 is undoubtedly one of the headline events of this year's Fishguard Festival, there will be much more virtuoso piano playing to relish.

Donohoe, joint artistic director of the festival, has a worldwide reputation built over a lifetime. In contrast Anna Tsybuleva arrives as a young pianists at the start of her career and winner of the 2015 Leeds International Piano Competition.

The 25-year-old Russian is one of only two female winners of the competition and appears at Neuadd y Dderwen, Rhosygilwen, on Saturday, July 29. Her programme will include CPE Bach's Sonata in G minor, Brahms Piano Sonata No. 2 and The Season by Tchaikovsky.

As previewed previously Donohoe will soloist for Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No 1 at St David's Cathedral on July 26.

But that's far from being the end of the piano fest. Pianist Evgenia Startseva from Kazakhstan has her won career as a soloist but will be at the festival this year with Elenid Owen on violin on Tuesday, July 25, at the Holy Name Catholic Church, Fishguard, and at the same venue on Thursday, July 27, with mezzo soprano Rebecca Afonwy Jones.
