This afternoon’s recital will feature the premiere of a new work Shadings for piano and electronics.
Shadings was written in memoriam the composer Professor Helmut Bieler, who founded and led the contemporary music series “Zeit für Neue Musik” in Bayreuth.
Commissioned to perform there in March 2020, and upon the news of Professor Bieler’s passing in 2019, I wanted to compose a new work in thanks to his dedication to new and experimental music. I was kindly sent some of Professor Bieler’s last music sketches, which have been used as a basis for Shadings’s compositional ideas.
The premiere unfortunately had to be postponed on numerous occasions, as were so many other concerts during that time, and I am delighted to be able to present the work in Hull Minster this afternoon.
The title is an approximate translation of the German “Schattierungen”, the original title of this work.
Today’s programme will include other solo piano compositions and improvisations.
