Sam Haywood (piano)

The list of female creative artists is shorter than that of men not because of some genetic lack of talent but simply because writing, painting and composing demands time, money and, as Virginia Woolf showed, one’s own, lockable room; for centuries, women had none of these at their disposal. Happily, however, from the 19th century onwards this state of affairs began gradually to change, as proven by the careers and oeuvres of, for example, the Venezuelan-born Teresa Carreño, Marie-Juliette Olga (Lili) Boulanger who died in 1918 at the age of 24, one-time fellow student of Debussy Mélanie Bonis, , and Vítězslava Kaprálová, born in Brno in 1915. British pianist Sam Haywood has compiled his programme from their works, counterpointing the hitherto little-known compositions with Chopin classics.

 

 

The concert is followed by CODA – which is an informal conversation with the performers.
