Landscapes and Seascapes
– a celebration of the music of Stephanie Cant
This concert is on Saturday 25th October 2014, starting at 6.45pm, preceded at 6.00pm by a 20 minute pre-concert talk.
The pre-concert talk will be given by Stephanie Cant, and will include a performance by her of Wedding Songs (1993) by way of an introduction to her subsequent compositions in the main concert, where a few of the musical themes do recur.
The rest of the music in the programme, by Bach, Schubert, Chopin and Rachmaninov, has been chosen to reflect some of the influences there have been on Stephanie’s approach to composing for the piano.
