Clare Hammond piano

A pianist of ‘amazing power and panache’ (The Telegraph), Clare Hammond is renowned for her performances of contemporary music. Her latest project features two new commissions, both featuring film shorts as a backdrop to the music. Ken Hesketh’s score, specially written for Clare, accompanies the expressionist film Hände; while Ed Hughes’s The Nose is a new score to a short film inspired by Nikolai Gogol’s dream-like story of a government official whose nose goes missing.

Ed Hughes : The Nose
Kenneth Hesketh : Notte Oscura
Thomas Ades : 3 Mazurkas
Piers Hellawell : Piani, Latebre
Kenneth Hesketh : Hände
