Hay Music presents William Howard (piano)

Howard Skempton’s Preludes and Fugues: World Première

– St Mary’s Church

One of Britain’s most experienced and versatile pianists appears at Hay Festival for the first time with the world première of a cycle of Preludes and Fugues by Howard Skempton, a composer loved for his accessible but highly individual and beautifully crafted miniatures. Alongside some iconic romantic repertoire from Liszt, Mendelssohn and Chopin, Howard also plays a selection of piano love songs that he commissioned for his hugely successful album Sixteen Contemporary Love Songs. William Howard and Howard Skempton will introduce the repertoire in conversation with Clemency Burton-Hill, commencing the concert at 7.30pm.
