- What’s On
The peerless Imogen Cooper has been hailed for her skill and lyricism.
BBC Music critic Jeremy Siepmann writes that she ‘commands a dynamic and colouristic range beyond the reach of most pianists. She understands that musical, like verbal, speech acquires eloquence and continuity through the close, asymmetrical juxtaposition of extreme but varied contrasts – as in any polysyllabic word.’
In this not-to-be-missed evening, Cooper will perform pieces by Schubert and Chopin. In an interview with the FT before her 70th birthday performance at the Wigmore Hall, she describes how Schubert, ‘like a lot of us musicians’, was prone to rapid mood swings. ‘He can go from dark to light from one bar to the next’. In a rare accolade, the Wigmore Hall gave her a standing ovation.
