Programme Note

‘She is an outstanding artist, one of the finest pianists now playing. Go, listen, and wonder how many better pianists there are alive in this country, or anywhere.’ [Daily Telegraph]

Regarded as one of the finest interpreters of Classical and Romantic repertoire, Imogen Cooper CBE is internationally renowned for her virtuosity and lyricism. She has a widespread international career in orchestral, chamber and solo performance, and as a Lieder recitalist, she has had a long collaboration with Wolfgang Holzmair. Her wide live performance career is matched by an extensive discography.

‘Pianistically alone, Cooper commands a dynamic and colouristic range beyond the reach of most pianists. She understands that musical, like verbal, speech acquires eloquence and continuity through the close, asymmetrical juxtaposition of extreme but varied contrasts – as in any polysyllabic word. Nowhere is this truer than in Schumann, whose own juxtaposition of emotional-psychological extremes requires a maximum of characterisation with a minimum of evidence – the art that conceals art’ [Jeremy Siepmann, BBC Music Magazine, 2015].

We are delighted to welcome Imogen Cooper back after too long an absence from the Club.
