Joanna MacGregor is one of today’s most invigorating of all high-profile musicians. Her remarkable programme brings together Beethoven with three outstanding female composers.

Sofia Gubaidulina’s cataclysmic Chaconne challenges Baroque form with a spiritual intensity, exploding the ideals of crisis and redemption. Eleanor Alberga draws on African rhythms and Aleksandr Pushkin’s famous poem, It’s time my friend, it’s time, to create spaciousness and profundity; while transcriptions of the great political activist and musician Nina Simone crackle with fiery virtuosity, referencing Liszt, Bach and the blues.

Wrapped within two of Beethoven’s towering masterpieces and spiced with Ginastera’s Argentinian dances, the programme demonstrates Joanna MacGregor’s unique talent for reinvention of the concert recital, exciting the heart and intellect with equal force.
