Pianist John Paul Ekins has set up 'Classical Concerts from Quarantine' to bring high quality live classical music to those stuck at home and starved of such stimulation during the Covid 19 lockdown. This takes the form of weekly 3pm Sunday solo piano recitals broadcast live from his music room on Facebook, YouTube and Instagram.
He takes requests and so the 45 minute programme each week is normally made up of pieces that members of his audience have asked for. Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, Chopin, Schubert, Brahms, Liszt are just a few of the composers whose music he has performed so far. The back catalogue of the concerts is all on his YouTube channel, via the links below.
These are fundraising concerts for NHS Charities. The donation link is: www.facebook.com/donate/1056745728046173/?fundraiser_source=external_url
