Root after root of story
Featuring works for flute and piano and poetry by Águeda Pizarro and Maya Angelou
Clapham Clapham Chamber Concerts continues its 2022-23 season on 18th November with an exploration, through music and text, of human connection, breath and story-telling. Performing works for flute and piano including Francis Poulenc’s Flute Sonata, and Nuit by CCC’s composer-in-residence, David Wallace. Also featuring poetry by Águeda Pizarro and Maya Angelou.
Flautist and actor Sarah Bennington and pianist Tomáš Klement team up to create a “large tapestry of all the colours” in Joseph Schwantner’s Black Anemones, shed light on the delicious diversity of the human family in Valerie Coleman’s Fanmi Imèn, celebrate loved ones in both Nico Muhly’s Hudson Cycle and Ian Clarke’s Beverley, and explore the “dark, light and the shadows that exist between” in John Adams’s China Gates.
Join us to uncover the muses behind music, the will behind words, and the power behind people. Tickets can be booked in advance from our Eventbrite page using the button below. There will be two performances, at 6.00pm and 8.00pm at St Paul's Church, Rectory Grove, Clapham.
