Acclaimed pianist to give summertime recital in Tetbury

An outstanding pianist will be giving a recital at Tetbury Goods Shed on Saturday, July 17.

Acclaimed as a pianist of "amazing power and panache" (The Telegraph), Clare Hammond is recognised for the virtuosity and authority of her performances.

She has developed a "reputation for brilliantly imaginative concert programmes" (BBC Music Magazine). In 2016, she won the Royal Philharmonic Society's 'Young Artist Award' in recognition of outstanding achievement and in 2020 she was engaged to perform at the International Piano Series (Southbank Centre) and the Aldeburgh Festival..

Programme

Montgeroult - Etudes Nos. 37, 55, 74, 36 and 111

Brahms - 6 Piano Pieces, Op. 118

WG Still - Bells (i. Phantom Chapel, ii. Fairy Knoll)

Rachmaninov - Sonata No.2 in B flat minor, Op 36

(revised version, 1931)

Performances during the pandemic included a live recital broadcast for BBC Radio 3 Lunchtime Concerts from St David's Cardiff, recitals at Snape Maltings for Aldeburgh Music, and a broadcast of Carwithen's piano concerto with the BBC Concert Orchestra (Gavin Sutherland).

During 2020-21, Clare was engaged to perform with the Britten Sinfonia (Ryan Wigglesworth), Sinfonia Varsovia (Jacek Kaspszyk), Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (Christoph Altstaedt) and the BBC Symphony Orchestra (Dalia Stasevska).

In recent seasons, she has performed Hesketh with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra (Vasily Petrenko), Panufnik with the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra (Jacek Kaspszyk), Roxburgh with the BBC Symphony Orchestra (Michael Seal), and Connesson with the Philharmonia (Jamie Phillips).

Clare gave the world premiere of Uncoiling The River by Kenneth Hesketh with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales (Martyn Brabbins) and released the Complete Keyboard Works of Myslivecek with the Swedish Chamber Orchestra (Nicholas McGegan) for BIS Records in 2019.

Tickets are £15 each. Pre-booked seats only (no tickets on the door). Licensed bar. Doors open at 8pm and the recital starts at 8.30pm.
