Local clarinetist Bethan Jones teams up with the American pianist and composer William Grosvenor Neil during one of his rare visits to the UK. This lunchtime recital combines classics such as Francis Poulenc’s Clarinet Sonata, Claude Debussy’s Première Rhapsodie and Vaughan Williams’ Six Studies in English Folk Song with performances of William Neil’s original and innovative compositions.
The concert will conclude with a new piece written by Neil for this occasion and involves a guest appearance by Matthew Jones, Professor of Viola at the Guildhall College of Music and Drama.
This is a fund-raising concert in aid of the local charity Sight Support, which engages with and assists blind and visually impaired people across Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire. There is no cost for this event but donations to Sight Support are most welcome.
This event will be taking place in the University Chapel which is accessed via Middleton Hall’s foyer.
The versatile venue is used for classical music concerts, and with adaptable acoustics, it is also used as a surround-sound cinema and theatre space.
