FUTURE EVENTS

Tippett/Beethoven Series

Sunday 8 July 2018, 10am – 6pm
City Lit, 1—10 Keeley St, London, WC2B 4BA

Tippett Day: a celebration of the life and work of Sir Michael Tippett on the 20th anniversary of his death, focusing on the composer’s piano music and his intense relationship to the music of Beethoven.

The morning session will consist of talks and a round table discussion on Tippett, his piano music, and his relationship to Beethoven.

Confirmed speakers include Meirion Bowen (Tippett’s partner and most closely bound up with the 3rd and 4th Sonatas), Oliver Soden (currently writing the first full length biography of Tippett for publication in 2019), Dr Christopher Mark, prominent English music researcher, William Mival, Head of Composition at RCM and frequent broadcaster, as well as Andrew Ball, distinguished pianist and teacher, and former Head of Keyboard Studies at the RCM, who will give the afternoon masterclass.

The masterclass, from 2 pm, will feature three of the four pianists who are playing in the BPSE Tippett Festival at St. James’s Piccadilly in August: Yuki Negishi, Julian Trevelyan and Thomas Ang and a voice and piano team performing ‘The Heart’s Assurance‘.
