Clare Hammond

Tuesday 23 June 3pm (ends approx. 4.25pm)

From £5.00 to £20.00

Britten Studio

Part of Aldeburgh Festival

Tuesday 23 June 2020 - 3.00pm

Clare Hammond is equally at home in music of today as she is taking on the huge virtuosic challenges of the cornerstones of the piano repertoire.

Her programme encompasses Bach’s florid Toccata, the heady atmosphere of St Petersburg’s Shrovetide Fair (as depicted in Stravinsky’s concert work drawn from his famous ballet) and Rachmaninov’s mighty sonata.

In between come more intimate reflective moments; extracts from Kenneth Hesketh’s cycle covering sunrise to sunset (delicate miniatures with evocative expression markings – ‘as fleet as the tiniest humming bird’… ‘like intertwining chime clocks’) and Turnage’s suite of lyrical mediations for family and friends.

Booking opens on Tuesday 18 February at 10am
