|Pianist Joyce Clarke in concert at the|
Arsenale di Venezia
Joyce regularly gets together with violinist Anna Cockroft and 'cellist Ruth Lass to form the 'Beacon Piano Trio'. The trio gave a delightful concert on Wednesday 9th February this year (details). Joyce also performs many beautiful solo recitals. Before her recent concert at the Arsenale in Venice, she gave us a very enjoyable preview of that programme at a concert on Wednesday 4th May (details).
This Tuesday morning on the 'Classical Journey', we can enjoy two hours of Joyce's superb recordings - all made at Harewood in East Devon. We shall start with some of her favourite pieces from the classical repertoire, recorded between November last year and February this year. We can also hear some very special recordings, made in 2009, of Joyce playing music composed by the great British composer, Harold Noble - Joyce's father.
(Credit, of course, to the recording engineer - Ian Loud - for the impressive sound quality on the recordings!)
As we enjoy the music we can also hear from Joyce about her life as a musician - and of course about her father, Harold Noble.
Here's what we can look forward to hearing this Tuesday morning:
Beethoven - Pathetique Sonata 2nd movementChopin - Nocturne in C sharp minorBrahms - Intermezzo in ARachmaninoff - How Fair is this Place
