Tonight


If you fancy a concert in London tonight then I can't think you'll do better than Matthew Schellhorn's debut recital at the Wigmore Hall. This talented young pianist is performing a fascinating bird themed programme, with works by Messiaen (something of a speciality of his), Rameau, Daquin and Dutilleux, plus the premiere of a piece Schellhorn has commissioned from Ian Wilson. The programme concludes with a well chosen group of Chopin pieces.

The Wilson premiere is book 4 of his Stations, a 14 movement work inspired by the stations of the Cross. The work is divided into 4 books and Schellhorn has already premièred books 1 to 3

Further details here.

  1. Such a young man and such talented!! …works by Messiaen (something of a speciality of his), Rameau, Daquin and Dutilleux, plus the premiere of a piece Schellhorn has commissioned from Ian Wilson – so this is practically our history!!
