Making Waves – postponed

02.2.22 We regret to announce that this event has been postponed. Any tickets purchased will be refunded, and a new date advertised as soon as possible.

Marking the culmination of a project ‘Making Waves’, join us at two events conceived and led by Hughes Hall Music  reviving Gordon Crosse’s 20th century masterpiece for cello and piano.

Afternoon Event
Alexander Baillie ‘in conversation’ with pianist Nigel Yandell, 3.00 – 4.00 pm, Pavilion Rm, Hughes Hall

To learn more about Wavesongs and the music of Gordon Crosse (1937 – 2021), we are offering a FREE pre concert event exploring the work in its historical context.

Evening Event
Cello and Piano Recital, 8:00 pm – 10.00 pm, Jesus Chapel, Jesus College
A rare opportunity to hear Internationally-renowned cellist Alexander Baillie with pianist Nigel Yandell perform a programme at Jesus Chapel comprising music from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries

  • Minna Keal – Ballade
  • Schumann – Adagio and Allegro, op. 70
  • Beethoven – Sonata in C, op. 102, no. 1
  • Gordon Crosse – Wavesongs (1983)

Schumann’s passionate Adagio and Allegro and Beethoven’s Sonata No. 4 in C will be framed by Minna Keal’s early Ballade and Wavesongs, a little known but wonderfully haunting evocation of the sea written by British composer Gordon Crosse in 1983.

A link for more info/to buy tickets will be made available when a new date has been finalised.
