Many well-known composers and musicians started their careers at startlingly early ages, playing their first instruments almost as soon as they could walk or speak.
Moscow-born Evelyne Berezovsky, who will perform tomorrow at The Castle theatre in Wellingborough, as part of the Lunchtime Music Series, started playing the piano at the age of five. Two years later, she had joined the class of Ilana Davids at the Purcell School of Music. In 2009, she won a scholarship to the Royal Academy of Music, in London, where she now studies.
Her recital will start at 12.30pm and will include music by Schumann and Chopin. Tickets cost £10 (including buffet lunch). Call 01933 270007 or visit www.thecastle.org.uk
