Commissioning of New Work

As part of the Club's 60th Anniversary celebrations Anna Meredith has been commissioned to write a work for piano sextet which will be performed at the opening concert of the 2011/2012 season. Anna first came to public attention through her piece froms for the BBC Last Night of the 2008 Proms. More importantly she has just received the prestigious Paul Hamlyn Award 2010 given to a very limited number of exceptional young composers. Joanna MacGregor, the pianist and broadcaster, who was a judge for this year's Awards for Composers, said: "The Paul Hamlyn Foundation Awards for Artists offer generous, absolutely indispensable, no-strings-attached support over a period of three years. The three outstanding composers chosen this year have unique backgrounds and voices - all of them are original, challenging, and supremely imaginative, making music and breaking boundaries in ways that are vitally energising and creative. I'm delighted to have been involved in this prestigious Award".


Beethoven CDs

François-Frédéric Guy, who will perform the complete Beethoven Sonata Cycle for the Club between 25th March and 3rd April 2011, has just released his complete box set of the Beethoven Piano Concertos under the naïve label.


Schubert CDs

Paul Lewis and Steven Osborne who gave a stunning concert of Schubert duets last January recorded the complete recital one week later for Hyperion. It has just been released and is the Editor's Choice in this month's Gramophone describing the pianists as a "...dream team... from the first moment you are gripped, transported into a world of musical imagination from which you are never released."
