Piano Recital at Hellens

Performed by Mark Bebbington

8th October 2017 @ 3:00pm - 4:50pm

Concert duration is approximate
£ - £

The internationally acclaimed British pianist Mark Bebbington will play a marvellous mixed programme featuring some of the best loved works in the piano repertoire.


Scarlatti            Sonatas in D major (L14) and B minor (L33)
Schubert            Sonata in A D664
Ireland             Sarnia: An Island Sequence
Derek Smith            Sonatine (première)
Debussy            La Cathédrale engloutie (from Preludes Book I)
Debussy            Feux d’artifice (from Preludes Book II)

Chopin             Nocturne in B flat minor Op 9 No 1
Chopin             Ballade No 1 in G minor Op 23

In this recital, one of Schubert’s most loved piano works is prefaced by two short sonatas by the prolific and richly inventive Baroque composer Domenico Scarlatti. The first half ends with John Ireland’s impressionistic Sarnia (the Roman name for Guernsey). After the interval, an intriguing new work by the highly respected Malvern composer Derek Smith is followed by two of Debussy’s famous preludes, one inspired by the Breton tale of a submerged cathedral rising from the sea and sinking back into its depths and the second representing a display of fireworks. The recital ends with Chopin’s utterly gentle B flat minor nocturne and his beautiful and emotionally charged Ballade No 1.  Tickets at £15 (students £7.50) from Hereford Courtyard Box Office 01432 340555 or online at
