Regarded as one of the finest interpreters of Classical and Romantic repertoire, pianist Imogen Cooper reveals hidden depths in whatever she plays.
Renowned worldwide, her performances are praised by Gramophone for their ‘imaginative freedom’ and ‘balance of sense and sensibility’.
Her long-awaited debut at the Howard Assembly Room will travel from the classical poise of early Beethoven and the authority of Haydn’s C minor Piano Sonata, to the remarkable invention and emotional quality of Beethoven’s Piano Sonata No. 31.
The programme also includes Darknesse Visible by one of the most important composers in contemporary music, Thomas Adès (recent work includes The Exterminating Angel at the Royal Opera House).
