Voices of Night and Day
Nicola performs a recital of contemporary music for solo piano touching on themes of night and day, life and death, musical space as bounded by the extremes of the piano keyboard and elasticity of time.
World premières from Tom Armstrong, Graham Yeloff and Robert Percy stand alongside Sally Beamish's rarely heard Voices in Silence and Graham Fitkin's energetic Relent. A new work from Ellen Drewe, currently studying at Trinity Laban Conservatoire, completes the programme.
Refreshments will be served after the concert when there will be an opportunity to meet the artists.
SOMM releases Nicola’s CD of solo piano works by Tchaikovsky, which includes his Grande Sonate in G major and the rarely performed Sonata in C sharp minor. Also featured on the disc are some shorter gems, as well as the contemplative Doumka Op 59 subtitled “Rustic Russian Scene”.
