The Shepherd on the Rock
Music for soprano, clarinet and piano
Clapham Chamber Concerts kicks off its new season with a wonderfully varied programme of music for voice, clarinet and piano. Presented by CCC artistic director and clarinettist, Jonathan Parkin, this concert will showcase the talent of young award-winning soprano, Charlotte Bowden, recently selected as a ‘Philip and Dorothy Green Young Artist’ for 2019. Whilst featuring two greatly loved works by Franz Schubert, the Arpeggione Sonata and The Shepherd on the Rock, the concert will also include a rarely performed song cycle by popular twentieth century English composer Gustav Holst, and music for solo piano by Franz Liszt, performed by pianist John Paul Ekins, now a familiar face at the concert series.
"Having the opportunity to perform Schubert’s Shepherd on the Rock with the wonderful soprano, Charlotte Bowden, will be a real treat for me alone, let alone for our audience!"
(Jonathan Parkin, CCC)
