Clare Hammond: Guildhall Alumni Recital

Mon 12 Mar 2018 19:30

Milton Court Concert Hall

Event Price: £5 - £15

Pianist and RPS Music Award Winner Clare Hammond returns to Guildhall to showcase contemporary approaches to the piano, alongside more familiar masterpieces.

Opening with Haydn’s witty Fantasia, Clare then presents three etudes by Unsuk Chin and three by Guildhall professor, Julian Anderson, both striking in their wizardry. Beethoven’s Op. 109 Sonata, with its rare intimacy and affection, closes the first half. In the second, Scriabin’s mercurial second sonata and Stravinsky’s dazzling Petroushka Suite frames a new work by Guildhall alumnus Edmund Finnis, commissioned by Clare and here receiving its world premiere.
