Described by The Times as ‘one of the most thoughtful and sensitive of British pianists’, Mishka Rushdie Momen is known for her performances of Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert. However, she also has a special interest in Renaissance music. Tonight, she plays William Byrd’s arrangement of Dowland’s lovely pavan for solo lute and also John Bull’s Walsingham Variations based on The Ballad of Walsingham, a popular tune in medieval England. Moving on from the sixteenth century, Mishka plays one of Schubert’s most introspective sonatas, a cheering rondo by Mozart, a brilliant set of variations by Mendelssohn and the third to last of Beethoven’s piano sonatas.

Mishka Rushdie Momen studied with Joan Havill and Imogen Cooper at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. She also studied periodically with Richard Goode, and at the Kronberg Academy with Sir András Schiff, who has presented her in recital and orchestral dates across the USA and Europe.

This concert is generously supported by Professor Graham Falconer.
