Sunday Morning Piano Series: Lauma Skride

Classical Music
This event has passed.

Fanny Mendelssohn  The Year (selection)
Debussy  Suite bergamasque
Liszt  Années de pèlerinage: Venezia e Napoli

Our new season opens with two portraits of Italy and an Impressionist masterpiece performed by Latvian pianist Lauma Skride. Lauma, also known as half of a piano duo with her sister Baiba, has won awards for her recording of Fanny Mendelssohn’s The Year. The piece tells the story of the composer’s time with her family in Italy, with music that looks forward to the Romanticism of Schumann and Liszt. Liszt’s own European travels are documented in his famous Anneés de Pélerinage, which included discoveries of a Gondolier’s folk song in Venice and a boisterous Tarantella dance from Naples. Impressionist master, Debussy’s beautiful suite includes one of the most famous pieces of piano music, Clair de Lune, in which the rich sound colours describe moonlight shining through the leaves of a tree.

Concerts last an hour and the ticket price includes tea, coffee and cake.
