Join recital project Uncharted Territory for a musical journey through landscape with the fantastically talented trio and special guest Peter Hill.
Uncharted Territory consist of Clare O’Connell (cello), Sarah O’Flynn (flute) and Roderick Chadwick (piano) – plus a very special guest. They explore the resonances of birdsong and nature in 20th century classical music. Their performance will be paired with a specially commissioned piece by Freya Waley-Cohen, taking inspiration from the wealth of Messiaen’s notebooks of annotated birdsong from across the globe.
They will be joined by special guest Peter Hill, award winning concert pianist and emeritus Professor at the University of Sheffield's Department of Music. Peter chose the beautiful Steinway Grand Piano in Firth Hall – so this is a wonderful chance to hear him play it.
