About This Performance

Expect nothing less than “playing of the greatest intelligence and musical integrity” (The Guardian) when Imogen Cooper immerses herself in the work of two composers close to her heart: Schumann and Liszt. A national treasure in her native England, Cooper has become known for poetic, insightful interpretations and a rare ability to negotiate the composers’ shifting moods. After a recital in Australia last season, the music website Bachtrack raved that “Cooper succeeded where only a few would in opening the imaginary gate between artist and the outside world and inviting her audience into a most intimate sphere.”
