Beethoven: Piano Sonata No 3 in C major Op 2 No 3
Brahms: Six Piano Pieces Op118
WG Still: Bells
Medtner: Sonata Romantica
Acclaimed as a “pianist of extraordinary gifts” (Gramophone) and “immense power” (The Times), Clare Hammond is recognised for the virtuosity and authority of her performances.
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).
A contemporary of Rachmaninov and Scriabin, Nicolai Medtner’s piano music is full of sweeping Russian melody and brilliance. Clare’s programme opens with one of Beethoven’s sparkling early sonatas juxtaposed with some of Brahms’s gorgeous autumnal late music.
