£15 (gallery) / £10 (stalls) / £5 (students)
Jonathan Powell
  • Frank Bridge: Piano Sonata
  • Debussy: Berceuse héroïque and Pièce pour l’oeuvre du Vêtement du blessé
  • Medtner: Piano Sonata op.30
  • Ravel: Le Tombeau de Couperin

Marking the centenary year of the outbreak of WW1, pianist Jonathan Powell presents music that reflects composers’ reactions to this conflict. Each movement of Ravel’s Le Tombeau de Couperin commemorates a fallen comrade, while Frank Bridge’s powerful Sonata is dedicated to the memory of his student Ernest Farrar who was killed on the Western Front in 1918. The programme is completed by the tempestuous ‘War’ Sonata (1917) by Rachmaninoff’s friend Nikolay Medtner, and two relatively unknown late miniatures by Debussy.
