Sun Keting - RPS Composer Premiere

Sat 13 Jul 2024, 11:00am - 1:00pm

Pittville Pump Room, Cheltenham

Sun Keting is writing a new work for Cheltenham Music Festival as part of her place on the RPS Composers programme. This is the first chance to hear the work she has written, performed by Clare Hammond.

Keting's artistic vision is deeply rooted in her passion for merging diverse musical styles and traditions, resulting in truly distinctive and captivating experiences for audiences. Her compositions predominantly focus on the performing arts and instrumental sound exploration, drawing inspiration from Eastern cultural, spiritual, and philosophical elements. You can read more about Keting and her work on our website here.

Keting is writing for pianist Clare Hammond, and her work features in a recital which blends darkness and light. The programme also includes music by Clara Schumann, Fauré, Beethoven, Chaminade, Mozart and Debussy.

Keting is one of seven individuals we are supporting on the 2024 RPS Composers programme, giving each a commission and premiere with a noted ensemble, festival or venue, as well as a year of professional development which gives them the chance to meet industry experts and professional composers, furthering their confidence and skills to seek further commissions and premieres of their own. The RPS Composers programme is made possible by a range of trusts and foundations, and through the kind support of RPS Members.
