Philadelphia Chamber Music Society presents Imogen Cooper, piano

Thursday, November 8, 2018 - 7:30pm - 9:30pm

“I try for a story to be told and to bring much color and difference of material to the sound in the piano,” Cooper says of her PCMS recital, which explores the audacious late sonatas of Haydn, Schubert, and Beethoven. The visionary intensity of the latter’s radiant Op. 110 sonata is prefaced here by Adès’s exploration of Dowland’s tormented song “In Darkness Let Me Dwell.”

Regarded as one of the finest interpreters of Classical and Romantic repertoire, Imogen Cooper is internationally renowned for her virtuosity and lyricism. Recent and future concerto performances include the Berliner Philharmoniker and Sir Simon Rattle, Sydney Symphony with Simone Young and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra with Thomas Dausgaard. This season she will perform lieder.
