About the event

Jennifer Hou presents The Piano Sings

On Wednesday 6th March 2024 from 12.40 to 1.20pm, the Wesley Lunchtime concert series welcomes back pianist Jennifer Hou performing three works by Ross Edwards (Sea Star Fantasy), Alexander Scriabin (Étude Op.42 No.5 in C# minor) and César Franck (Prélude, Choral et Fugue, FWV 21).

Songs and lyricism often inspire the greatest works in piano literature. The Edwards’ piece is inspired by the Marian hymn, Ave Maris Stella (“Hail Star of the Sea,”). The étude’s song-like melodies soar above the complex and intense harmonies that are uniquely Scriabin. Franck invigorates the prélude and fugue genre by inserting a chorale in the middle of this great masterpiece, adding another theme to develop and interweave in the cadenza.
