Haydn Sonata in E minor, Hob. XVI:34
Brahms Intermezzo in A, Op.118 No.2
Schumann Symphonic Etudes, Op.13 (with 5 posthumous variations)
At just 20, British pianist George Harliono is already an experienced recitalist, having made his debut when he was nine years old. His programme explores the emotional development of piano music, beginning with Haydn’s Sonata in E, which demonstrated the possibilities of the new fortepiano. One of Brahms’s last works and now one of his best-loved, the Intermezzo in A was dedicated to Clara Schumann and is full of tender feelings and passionate memories. The young Robert Schumann composed his studies on a theme by Baron von Fricken between 1834 and 1837, and the wealth and complexity of their colours are truly symphonic in scale, making them some of the most challenging pieces in the Romantic repertoire.
Admission price includes tea, coffee and cake.
