About the event

Pianist Gemma Lee brings a programme for solo piano inspired by the desire to bring beautiful music not commonly heard to the concert platform. Focussing on music by Bach, Debussy and Beethoven we get the chance to experience a different aspect of their work than their really famous ones that we all know and love. Beginning with J.S Bach’s Prelude and Fugue in C major, from the Well Tempered Clavier book II, Debussy’s delightful Suite Bergamasque follows and the programme concludes with Beethoven’s Piano Sonata no.10 in G Major. When the last note resounds, you’ll be reminded of what Debussy wrote once —that the primary aim of music “is to give pleasure.”
