Due to surgery, Gabriela Montero is no longer able to appear in this concert. We are grateful to David Greilsammer for agreeing to step in at short notice.

The ever-imaginative Israeli pianist brings together for us two composers who in their own ways were most definitely ‘at the edge’: the baroque keyboard magician that was Domenico Scarlatti, and the 20th-century innovator John Cage, whose brilliantly conceived sonatas for a piano with nuts, bolts and rubbers placed between the strings, create a wondrous new soundworld for the instrument.

‘Italian baroque and New York avant-garde face up to one another like lion and tamer, with fascinating results.’ The Guardian
