Mark Bebbington plays at Hellens, Much Marcle


Much Marcle,


The internationally acclaimed British pianist Mark Bebbington will play a marvellous mixed programme featuring some of the best loved works in the piano repertoire.

Scarlatti Sonatas in D major (L14) and B minor (L33)
Schubert Sonata in A D664
Ireland Sarnia: An Island Sequence
Derek Smith Sonatine (première)
Debussy La Cathédrale engloutie (from Preludes Book I)
Debussy Feux d’artifice (from Preludes Book II)
Chopin Nocturne in B flat minor Op 9 No 1
Chopin Ballade No 1 in G minor Op 23

In this recital, one of Schubert’s most loved piano works is prefaced by two short sonatas by the prolific and richly inventive Baroque composer Domenico Scarlatti. The first half ends with John Ireland’s impressionistic Sarnia (the Roman name for Guernsey). After the interval, an intriguing new work by the highly respected Malvern composer Derek Smith is followed by two of Debussy’s famous preludes, one inspired by the Breton tale of a submerged cathedral rising from the sea and sinking back into its depths and the second representing a display of fireworks. The recital ends with Chopin’s utterly gentle B flat minor nocturne and his beautiful and emotionally charged Ballade No 1.
