MOZART Fantasy in C minor K396
SZYMANOWSKI Masques Op.34
CHOPIN Four Ballades
Tim Horton continues his exploration of Chopin’s central place within the history of the piano. Looking back, Mozart’s improvisational Fantasy in C minor is dramatic in quality and dark in tone. Looking forward, Szymanowski’s dream-like Masques is colourful, hypnotic and capricious. Taking centre stage, Chopin’s innovative four Ballades share noble melodies and dance-like quality to explore the varied colours of the piano.
DEBUSSY Préludes Book 2 (39′)
CHOPIN 24 Preludes Op.28 (38′)
Chopin composed wonderfully melodic music for solo piano, which is why it is still so popular today. This is the first of six concerts featuring Chopin that Tim will perform with Music in the Round over the next few seasons. Sit back and enjoy…
