Tim continues his exploration of the music of one of the greatest composers for piano, Frédéric Chopin, in this third concert in an ongoing series.

Few musicians have had an influence on other composers quite like Chopin, and Tim has selected a sequence of some of his most beautiful music to illustrate this. Robert Schumann’s Davidsbundlertänze is music of intense passion that leaps without warning from tender to wild melodies, while Karlheinz Stockhausen’s approach to the piano was to find an entirely new world of sound, creating fascinating spine-tingling sonorities.

6pm – 6.30pm
