Oxford Piano Festival: Mishka Rushdie Momen

Part of the Oxford Piano Festival 2021

Add to my Calendar 27-07-2021 20:30 27-07-2021 22:30 36 Oxford Piano Festival: Mishka Rushdie Momen Still in her 20s, Mishka Rushdie Momen emerged as an artist of distinctive promise during lockdown - in a sequence of Wigmore Hall appearances that won her glowing reviews and a nomination for the ‘Breakthrough’ category in this year’s Sky Arts Awards. She brings to Oxford an eclectic programme, starting with the C Major Prelude and Fugue that opens Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier (and provided Gounod with the inspiration for his celebrated Ave Maria) followed by a funereal shift into C Minor for Mozart’s Fantasia in C minor, K. 475: a work so bold in its proto-romanticism that it prefigures Liszt. Next comes a set of Schumann impromptus based around a theme by the teenaged Clara Wieck who would eventually become his wife; a formidable étude, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, from the set of studies that crowned Ligeti’s keyboard output; and a return to C Major for Schubert’s ‘Wanderer’Fantasie – written in the grand manner the composer reserved for that key, and imposing demands on the performer that Schubert himself never mastered. Reportedly he gave up on the final fugue, saying (expletives unrecorded) ‘let the devil play this stuff’. SJE Arts - St John the Evangelist Church, Oxford DD/MM/YYYY
