Fitkin at 60: Strings, Piano & Harp

15 May 2023 19:15 - 21:10

A personal celebration of musical connections and friendships for Sheffield Chamber Music Festival Curator, Kathryn Stott.

Marking the 60th birthday of Kathy’s long-term collaborator, post-minimalist composer Graham Fitkin, this concert includes his piece for harp and string quartet performed by award-winning harpist Ruth Wall with Ensemble 360.

A second theme running through this evening’s programme: Menotti, Barber, Lili and Kathy all have links to Nadia Boulanger, one of the most influential teachers of musical composition of the 20th century.

Kathy joins Ensemble 360 for Lili’s exquisite trio and Gemma Rosefield for Samuel Barber’s intense sonata for cello and piano.
