Christina McMaster in Debussy and Ruth Crawford-Seeger

British pianist Christina McMaster (whom I interviewed for this blog recently) is giving an exciting lunch time recital at St John's Smith Square on Thursday 25 June 2015. The centrepiece of the programme is a sequence of preludes by Debussy and by the 20th century American composer Ruth Crawford-Seeger. Ruth Crawford-Seeger's career as a composer stretched from her roots in modernism, right through to her work in folk-music. But despite her importance as a contemporary modernist composer her work is still under represented. It will be intriguing to hear her rather dark preludes played side by side with those of Debussy. Also in the programme is music by Harrison Birtwistle, Satie, John Cage, Sofia Gubadulina and Richard Mundy.
