He will perform a broad and difficult solo program with 4 Brahms ballades Op. 10, 12 Chopin etudes Op. 25, 4 Debussy miniatures and Rachmaninov Sonata No. 2.

The same program he performed earlier this season. After highly appreciated solo recital at London Wigmore Hall Robert Beattie from Sean and Heard International has noted “Uinskas Displays Mastery of the Romantic Repertoire”. “Like the best players of Rachmaninov… Uinskas brought the house down with a barnstorming piece of playing in the coda.”  “Uinskas performed the first of Chopin’s Op 27 nocturnes as an encore to end an evening of first rate piano playing.”
