Works by four of music’s greatest innovators are included in Peter Hill’s recital that combines old and new: Preludes and Fugues from Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier - the first collection of piano pieces in all twenty-four keys - to the move away from conventional harmony in Berg’s early Piano Sonata and taken still further in Schoenberg’s astonishing series of miniatures. The concert also features pieces by Messiaen based upon birdsong, including the world première of La Fauvette Passerinette, recently completed by Peter Hill from Messiaen’s original manuscript now housed in the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris.
This concert will be broadcast by BBC Radio 3
