John Snijders: Flexibility and Freedom
Tue 19 Nov , 7:30 pm| £10
Fanny Hensel-Mendelssohn Bartholdy – Notturno, Abschied von Rom, Allegro molto, O Traum der Jugend, O goldner Stern, Allegro vivace
Johann Nepomuk Hummel – Piano Sonata Nr.3 in F Minor Op.20
Franz Schubert – Piano Sonata in B-flat Major D.960
In this recital for Musicon, pianist and composer John Snijders takes us back to the piano-playing style of the 19th century, characterised by the pronounced use of rubato and the freedom to add embellishments not included in the score, a freedom that is expressed with great lyricism in Schubert’s final work, the Piano Sonata in B-flat.
Prof. Julian Horton gives a pre-concert talk before this recital, starting at 6.45
Tickets: £10 adults, £4 students, £1 under 18s, available online from the link below, from Durham World Heritage Information Centre, Owengate or on the door.
