Tim Horton’s Recital At Kettle’s Yard Looks To The Past For Answers To The Future

Tim Horton’s recital at Kettle’s Yard looks to the past for answers to the future

Tim Horton’s showcase solo piano recital will be at Kettle’s Yard in Cambridge on Thursday 16th March.

His programme focuses on contemporary works that “look to the past for answers to the future”. Thomas Adès pays homage to Chopin in his Three Mazurkas, Op. 27, while Julian Philips’s Barcarola transports the audience to an intimate 19th-century salon, but with a modern and somewhat unsettling take on the tradition of the ‘boat song’. Helen Grime’s 10 Miniatures throw new light on a form that has been popular amongst composers for centuries, as she explores the idea of transforming material in unusual ways, each mini character piece based on some small fragment of what came before.

Sheffield Chamber Music Festival 2022

Sheffield Chamber Music Festival 2022

It’s great to be back in the Crucible with the first full festival since 2019. Helen Grime has done an amazing job putting together some of the best programmes I’ve ever been involved in. There’s lots of new music and at least one piece by a female composer in every concert. The audiences are great. I don’t think people are as scared of contemporary music as we’re led to believe, especially if it’s programmed as well as this.
