WG Still – Bells (i. Phantom Chapel, ii. Fairy Knoll)
Rachmaninov – Sonata No. 2 in B flat minor, Op. 36 (revised version, 1931)
Acclaimed as a pianist of “amazing power and panache” (The Telegraph), Nottingham’s Clare Hammond has a growing reputation for both the virtuosity and authority of her performances and for “brilliantly imaginative concert programmes” (BBC Music Magazine). You can experience Clare’s exceptional artistry in this streamed concert from the Royal Concert Hall which brings together four contrasting composers from very different musical traditions.
Hélène de Nervo de Montgeroult was born into an aristocratic family in France and, having survived the Reign of Terror following the French Revolution (reportedly by performing a set of improvisations on La Marseillaise for the Committee of Public Safety), she became the first woman professor at the Paris Conservatoire. Her richly imaginative Etudes reflect the influence of Bach and anticipate Chopin. Brahms’s Six Pieces for Piano remain some of the best-loved of his solo piano compositions, more intimate than his earlier piano works, but no less expressive. William Grant Still was described as the ‘Dean of Afro-American Composers’ and produced nearly 200 works in a long and fruitful career. Bells comprises two short, contrasting studies in atmosphere. Finally, Rachmaninov’s Second Piano Sonata displays the composer’s winning blend of drama and rich lyricism in a captivating twenty minutes.
