Pianist Helen Burford will be giving a recital in the warmly intimate wood-paneled Music Room at Burgh House tomorrow (11 May 2014 at 2.15pm). She will be playing a programme which combines Haydn, Scarlatti and Debussy's Estampes with Martin Butler's contemporary evocation of the mechanised modern age, Rumba Machine and Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue

Martin Butler is currently Professor of Music at the University of Sussex; from 2006-8 Butler was the Brighton Philharmonic Orchestra's first ever 'Composer in Focus'. The orchestra performed several large scale works during this period, and his tenure culminated in two performances of a major new commission

Burgh House is a lovely Queen Anne house in New End Square, Hampstead. The first floor houses Hampstead Museum and there is a lovely cafe in the basement. Further concert information and tickets from
