Listen to New Piano music with Philip Mead
Most concerts that you see advertised are for well-known pieces of music. This Tuesday you have the chance to go off the beaten track and listen to some new piano music with Philip Mead. If you have never listened to any modern piano music then we can thoroughly recommend you do so!
Philip Mead will be playing at 1pm in London at the Church of St George the Martyr. The best thing about this concert is that no tickets are required – you can just show up on your lunch break and listen to the wonders that Philip Mead has in store for his audience. Following the concert some light refreshments will be served. This is a brilliant opportunity to talk to other concert-goers about what they thought of the music. You may even make some new music-lover friends!
The programme of the concert consists of five pieces of music from Philip Mead. The afternoon will begin with ‘In the Orbit of Venus’ by Timothy Raymond and this will be followed by ‘Sonata for Piano’ by Richard Blackford. Next is a particularly interesting work, especially if you are clued up on your poetry; ‘Purgatory from Four Images after Yeats’ by Jonathan Harvey. The final two pieces of music in the programme are ‘Preludes 1 and 2, from 24 Preludes’ by Edward Cowie, and finally the intriguingly titled ‘Pebbles’ by Lisa Reim.
