Charles Owen: Partita No. 1 in B flat BWV 825: Gigue by J.S. Bach

09/09/2014

Rhinegold LIVE performance, Conway Hall

As professor of piano at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, Charles Owen is recognised as one of the leading pianists of his generation. The music for his recital on 9 September 2014 was specially chosen to link with his New York debut at the Frick Collection, home to some of the world’s greatest paintings. Six Debussy préludes – evoking musical images from a turbulent Atlantic storm to a troop of lively music hall performers – were featured alongside Bach’s B flat major Partita, Mendelssohn’s Variations Op 54, and the London premiere of Nico Muhly’s post-minimalist Short Stuff.
