Event description
New Tonalities: Music for Clarinet and Piano by Busoni, Wellesz, Hindemith

About this Event

This lecture-recital aims to highlight three answers to the crisis of traditional harmony in the time of the Fin de siècleand the first half of the 20th century. Approaches such as Schönberg’s serialism or Messiaen’s modes of limited transposition have been widely studied. We explore fascinating and inspiring contributions to the music of the last century by three composers who are less frequently programmed and whose tonal languages are less familiar, Busoni, Hindemith and Wellesz.

Janet Hilton has appeared with most major British orchestras, at festivals including Edinburgh and the BBC Promenade Concerts, and in many other countries. Her acclaimed recordings for Chandos include the chamber music repertoire by Weber, Brahms, Mozart and Sir Arthur Bliss and concertos by Weber, Nielsen, Copland and Stanford. She has also recorded Max Reger’s three clarinet sonatas for Naxos. Her most recent recording, Flying Solo, is a programme of music for unaccompanied clarinet. An internationally-known teacher, Janet was Head of Woodwind at the Royal College of Music for twelve years, where she continues to teach, also travelling widely for concerts and master classes, including visits to Paris, Vienna, the USA, Singapore, Hong Kong, Guangzhou and Australia.

Jakob Fichert has performed extensively in the UK and abroad and has recorded for Toccata Classics, Resonus Classics, Divine Arts and Naxos to great critical acclaim both as a soloist and collaborating artist in chamber music and Lied. Jakob studied at the Musikhochschule Karlsruhe with Wolfgang Manz and as a postgraduate with Yonty Solomon at the Royal College of Music. Jakob has given numerous master classes for conservatoires, universities and music specialist schools in the UK, China and Mexico, is Principal Lecturer in Piano at Leeds College of Music, Principal MA Piano Tutor at University of York and is also an Associate of the Universities of Leeds and Hull.
