The Petworth Festival welcomes back the remarkable pianist Isata Kanneh-Mason who so memorably appeared with her cellist brother, Sheku, at last October’s Petworth Festival Autumn Special. On this occasion we welcome her as a soloist having topped the classical charts with her debut album Romance featuring the music of Clara Schumann. For her recital, Isata brings a wide-ranging programme including major works by Mozart and Beethoven, with the second half dedicated to the music by two American greats – Gershwin and Samuel Barber – and the remarkable living Russian composer, Sofia Gubaidulina.
Mozart – Sonata No. 14 in C minor K.457
Chopin – Ballade No. 2 in F major, Op. 38
Beethoven – Sonata No. 1 in F minor, Op. 2, No. 1
Gubaidulina – Chaconne
Gershwin – Three Preludes
Barber – Piano Sonata in E flat minor, Op. 26
