Artist's Pick: Clare Hammond (piano)

On selected nights of the festival, I’ve asked past artists to choose a surprise Youtube performance as a treat for our audience.
Each selection will be preceded by a short introduction with the artist.

NCMF Summer 2020 - Clare Hammond's Artist Pick

JOAQUÍN RODRIGO (1901 - 1999)
Concierto de Aranjuez

Acclaimed as a pianist of “amazing power and panache” (The Telegraph), Clare Hammond is recognised for the virtuosity and authority of her performances and has developed a “reputation for brilliantly imaginative concert programmes” (BBC Music Magazine). In 2016, she won the Royal Philharmonic Society's 'Young Artist Award' in recognition of outstanding achievement while in 2020 she gives her debut recitals for the International Piano Series at the Southbank Centre and the Aldeburgh Festival.

In recent seasons, Clare has performed Hesketh with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra (Vasily Petrenko), Panufnik with the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra (Jacek Kaspszyk), Roxburgh with the BBC Symphony Orchestra (Michael Seal), and Connesson with the Philharmonia (Jamie Phillips). In 2019, she gave the world premiere of Uncoiling The River by Kenneth Hesketh with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales (Martyn Brabbins) and released the Complete Keyboard Works of Myslivecek with the Swedish Chamber Orchestra (Nicholas McGegan) for BIS Records. Clare has forthcoming engagements with the BBC Symphony Orchestra (Dalia Stasevska), Britten Sinfonia (Ryan Wigglesworth), Sinfonia Varsovia (Jacek Kaspszyk) and Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (Christoph Altstaedt).

After marinating indoors for the better part of a year and a half, we’ve all been desperate for live music. Et voilà – this summer, every concert sold out.
