Event Description

Elizabeth Hilliard (soprano) and David Bremner (piano) will performance pieces by French, Belgian and Irish composers including Nadia Boulanger, Augusta Holmès, Poldowski and featuring Rhona Clarke’s beautiful song cycle The End of Day, throughout which there are references to time, to its passing, moving between images of childhood and of older people.

Finding A Voice

For the fourth edition of Finding a Voice in 2021, the concert series will again focus on the music of women composers through the ages, building and expanding on the first three highly successful series since 2018. The theme for 2021 is #ItsAboutTime and several concerts will focus on the notion of “time” in all its different iterations, from Fanny Mendelssohn-Hensel’s epic piano piece Das Jahr [The Year], a musical diary of her travels in Italy, to percussionist Alex Petcu-Colan’s exploration of time in relation to rhythm, tempo and duration. Finding a Voice will also celebrate a significant anniversary in 2021 – the bi-centenary of the birth of Pauline Garcia Viardot, one of the most significant musical figures of the nineteenth century.
