JdP Concert Series – Piano Weekend 2: Jonathan Powell performs Sorabji’s Opus Clavicembalisticum
Kaikhosru Shapurji Sorabji Opus Clavicembalisticum
Opus Clavicembalisticum is perhaps Sorabji’s best known work, even if more talked about than played until the 1980s (this will only be the sixteenth public performance of it). Its twelve movements in three parts occupy at least 4¼ hours in performance. Replete with coruscating counterpoint, vehement virtuosity and irrepressible invention, “OC” throws down some of the most hair-raising challenges in the entire piano repertoire. It is without question a milestone in the history of the piano. FREE refreshments provided during the intervals.
PRE-CONCERT TALK at 2:30pm by Alistair Hinton (Sorabji Archive)
