Tetbury Goods Shed is delighted to welcome renowned pianist Clare Hammond for an evening of piano favourites this coming Saturday (February 8).

Clare will be performing works by Haydn, Schumann, Debussy, Rachmaninov, Rimsky-Korsakov and Mendelssohn together with a specially commissioned piece Ballad by Liz Lane.

Clare is recognised for the virtuosity and authority of her performances and has developed a "reputation for brilliantly imaginative concert programmes" (BBC Music Magazine).

Haydn - Sonata in C major, Hob XVI:48 (11')

Mendelssohn - The Bee's Wedding Op. 67, No. 4 (2')

Lane, Liz - Ballad (2008, 4')

Schumann, R. - Humoreske in B flat major, Op. 20 (27′)

Interval
