Cordelia Williams at Stapleford Granary
Cordelia Williams is recognised for the poetry and conviction of her playing and the depth and maturity of her interpretations. She has performed all over the world, including concertos with the English Chamber Orchestra, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
Cordelia's programme for the Granary takes inspiration from her Nightlight album. Spanning four centuries, from Thomas Tomkins’ melancholic, A Sad Pavan for These Distracted Times, to jazz virtuoso Bill Evans’ exquisitely hypnotic Peace Piece, the recital moves from the dark, conflicting moods of Schubert's late C minor Sonata to waking hopes for a new day in what Williams describes as 'the shimmering hope, glory just beyond the horizon' of Schumann’s Songs of Dawn.
