Ashley Fripp's recital shows the colourful variety of dance music throughout pianistic history, beginning with Weber's Invitation to the Dance - the first ever waltz intended solely for listening, not dancing, to.
Bartok's Hungarian and African infused Suite contrasts with Polish mazurkas of Chopin and Thomas Ades, and the programme concludes with the rousing fireworks of one of Chopin's most popular and virtuosic polonaises.
