ORGANISERS of St Peter’s Concerts scored an international coup by booking the latest performer asked to give a concert at the church.

Swedish pianist Martin Sturfält enjoys a busy international career as a concerto soloist and recitalist, and is also a passionate chamber musician, but on Saturday morning he is swopping the likes of the Royal Festival Hall and the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels to entertain local music lovers.

Born in Sweden in 1979, he started to play the piano at the age of four, began giving regular concerts at the age of 11, and has since performed around the world for both concert audiences and on television.

The concert at St Peter’s begins at 11 a.m., with coffee served from 10-30 a.m. The £4 admission covers the cost of a programme, refreshments and parking in the adjoining school yard. As usual, there is no charge for children or students.
