Royal College of Music Concert No 5:Nicholas Moloney and Jo Lewis
An evening of music and art exploring works from Debussy and the impressionists to Vaughan Williams and the history of English landscape paintings.
The programme includes a selection from Vaughan Wiliams’ ‘Job – a masque for dancing’, as well as a selection from Debussy’s 'Préludes Book 1', Ravel’s 'Miroirs: V. La vallée des cloches', Scriabin’s ‘Fantasie in B minor op 28’ and Ireland’s Piano Sonata.
Complemented by the visual works projected, music and art blend to produce a wonderfully lyrical and mesmerising performance.
Nicholas Moloney is in increasing demand as a concert pianist and chamber musician and is workig towards a doctorate at the Royal College of Music. Alongside his performance schedule, he is helping to produce an edition of the currently unpublished Frank Bridge Piano Quartet.
Jo Lewis is a visual artist who is interested in the process of enabling the rhythms of nature in a particular place and time to create the image, and many of her paintings are made entirely in and by the waters of rivers and the sea. She teaches at the National Gallery, Dulwich Picture Gallery and London Film School and has had residencies in France, London and Aldeburgh.
