Mozart 12 Variations in C major on C. Fischer's Minuet, K. 179
Mendelssohn Three Songs Without Words from Op. 67 (Nos. 2, 4 and 5)
Schubert Sonata in A major, D. 664
Ginastera Danzas Argentinas
Nottingham's own Claire Hammond, described by The Daily Telegraph as a pianist of 'amazing power and panache', performs excerpts from Mendelssohn's enduring Songs Without Words, which continue the mood set by Mozart's 12 variations. Schubert's 'Little' A major Sonata reflects the love of its Romantic creator, with buoyant spirits mixed with moments of poignancy before lively Argentinean folk rhythms erupt from Ginastera's Danzas Argentinas.
