Polish-Welsh-English pianist Cordelia Williams is recognised for the poetry, conviction and inner strength of her playing and the depth of her interpretations. She has performed all over the world, including concertos with the English Chamber Orchestra (in Mexico City), City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (at Barbican Hall, London), as well as recitals at Wigmore Hall, Royal Festival Hall and Beijing Concert Hall. She broadcasts regularly for BBC Radio 3. Read a recent review of her playing in Petersfield and an interview with her with Music in Portsmouth.

“Williams’ understanding of this music is remarkable… An album to cherish.” International Piano (Critics’ Choice)

“It takes real imagination to combine mostly standard repertoire in a way that’s both personal and musically insightful.” Pianist Magazine

Tickets are £20 (duration 100 minutes, including interval with complimentary tea and coffee). Cordelia will also give a Masterclass one hour after the recital ends featuring local musicians. Concert-goers will have free entrance to this fascinating bonus event.

Tickets may also be paid for on the door (cash/card) by reservation – if you are not pre-booking online, please contact Andrew McVittie saying how many seats you would like to reserve so that he can plan seating, etc.

Light refreshments will be available for purchase before and after the performance in the Lily & Lime Café. Why not treat yourself to a warming hot chocolate or a delicious piece of cake (or both)?
