AFTER delighting audiences with her recital during last summer’s Worcester Festival, classical pianist Harriet Amos returns to the city’s Huntingdon hall later this month.
Worcester resident Harriet has received training from world renowned pianist, Venera Bojkova, and now regularly performs back in her home city.
Her latest recital takes place on Friday, August 22, at 1pm.
Having explored the history of music in previous recitals, her repertoire now examines a darker and more tempestuous side to piano music through the centuries.
Since music is characterised by the composer who created it as much as by the musical period in which it was created, this recital demonstrates how composers have inserted their own personal circumstances and emotions into their music, creating a broad spectrum of characteristics within piano music that can be uplifting, amusing, moving, and sometimes even frightening.
From Debussy’s Prélude from the Suite Bergamasque to Beethoven’s Sonata Pathétique, this recital will cater for all musical tastes, demonstrating a capricious and personal side to Romantic and Classical Piano music that is rarely explored.
The perfect way to spend a summer’s afternoon.
