‘Miniatures’: 12 Original Compositions for Solo Piano

13 October 2023 @ 20:00 - 21:30

From £5

Premiere performance of ‘Miniatures’, 12 exquisite new piano solos from composer Michael A. Grant.

Drawing their inspiration from such classical masters as Mendelssohn, Satie, Brahms and Bach, each beautifully-crafted piece guides the listener on a journey through its own individual sound-world. There is the cheeky playfulness of ‘Compost Frog’; the brooding menace of ‘The Longest Night’; the buoyant optimism of ‘Springs’; the heart-rending tenderness of ‘Parting Waves’… At times joyful and bombastic, at times serene and contemplative, this is a collection that truly covers a vast emotional landscape.

This premiere concert performance will feature all 12 pieces performed by Jack Mitchell Smith, who with 10 fingers and 88 keys will conjure forth a dazzling spectrum of musical colours. There will also be accompanying commentary from the composer, who will shed light on the inspirations and nuances behind each composition.
