Brighton Festival: Les Chansons Instrumentales Part 3: Benjamin Appl, Bartosz Woroch, Adam Newman, Philip Higham, Adam Walker, Mark Simpson, James Baillieu
Poulenc: Rapsodie nègre
Hahn: Romanesque for flute, viola and piano
Piano Quintet in F sharp minor
In the final instalment of the Poulenc-Hahn concert series curated by James Baillieu (pictured above), we go back to the very beginning of Poulenc’s career. Poulenc destroyed his first efforts at composition; the Rapsodie nègre of 1917 is his earliest surviving work. We also hear his only violin sonata, whose melancholic tone reflects the circumstances of its composition in Nazi- occupied France. The selection of works by Hahn evokes a calmer world. Mostly written between 1901 and 1910, they conjure all the beauty and confidence of turn-of-the-century Paris.
International Artist Diploma cello recitalist. A student of Emma Ferrand, Philip was the first ever British winner of the International Johann Sebastian Bach Competition in Leipzig and he also won First Prize in the International Lutoslawski Cello Competition in Warsaw.
