Music - Classical, Thu 14 Mar 2019


Barnes Music Festival


Church Road,
SW13 9HL


This recital explores the varying ways in which composers have expressed their identities and contexts through different kinds of musical invention.

Arvo Pärt's unique tintinnabuli style creates simplicity and purity of sound. Bach's three-part 'keyboard exercises' are masterpieces in counterpoint and concision, each varying and transforming a tiny motif in manifold ways. Chopin evokes his homeland in artistic, refined interpretations of its traditional dance, the mazurka. Schubert’s mastery of invention is exemplified in the 3rd of these Impromptus by the transformation of a simple theme into a series of 5 enchanting variations.

Cordelia will discuss the techniques employed by each composer. She has great enthusiasm for presenting and introducing music.
