One of the greatest pianists of her generation, Imogen Cooper CBE makes an overdue and welcome return to Australia for this solo recital tour. The same words appear from critics around the world in praise of her mastery of the piano: humane, poetic, beautiful, restrained, insightful…
For the audience, a solo performance from this remarkable musician becomes a concert to remember – for its rare combination of virtuosity and essential humility, and for the unforgettable sense that surely this must be just what the composer intended.
Most of the music on the program focuses on the extraordinary musical and emotional kinship between Clara and Robert Schumann and their friend and protégé Johannes Brahms – and in particular on Clara, another ground breaking female pianist. Imogen is looking forward to her first full recital tour in Australia.
