The second concert in James Baillieu’s exploration of the work of François Poulenc and Reynaldo Hahn turns from songs to orchestral chamber music, as James is joined by three other leading instrumentalists from the Young Classical Artists Trust.
Perhaps nostalgia is a theme of these chamber works. Poulenc’s Cello Sonata draws on classical and Baroque styles; and while Hahn’s fresh and unpretentious style remained true to 19th-century Romanticism, his music redolent of his Belle Epoque heyday right up until his death in 1947. While the Flute Sonata is one of Poulenc’s most popular works, the rest of this programme provides an opportunity to explore the delightful but lesser-known repertory of early 20th-century chamber music.
South African-born classical pianist and accompanist who studied at London's Royal Academy of Music with Michael Dussek, Malcolm Martineau and Kathryn Stott.
'James Baillieu is surely the leader of the new generation' (Classical Source)
'In a class of his own' (Daily Telegraph).
