Cordelia Williams is recognised for the poetry and conviction of her playing and the depth and maturity of her interpretations. She has performed all over the world, including concertos with the English Chamber Orchestra, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, as well as recitals at Wigmore Hall, Royal Festival Hall and Beijing Concert Hall. Her recordings of Schubert, Schumann, Bach and Arvo Pärt have been highly acclaimed: 'Schumann’s 21st- century interpreter and soul-mate': 'a superb concept… brilliantly realised'. Her 2021 album Nightlight received rave reviews across the board and was awarded Critics' Choice (International Piano) and Recording of the Year (MusicWeb International).
Cordelia's programme for the Granary takes inspiration from her Nightlight album. Spanning four centuries, from Thomas Tomkins’ melancholic A Sad Pavan for These Distracted Times to jazz virtuoso Bill Evans’ exquisitely hypnotic Peace Piece, the recital moves from the dark, conflicting moods of Schubert's late C minor Sonata to waking hopes for a new day in what Williams describes as 'the shimmering hope, glory just beyond the horizon' of Schumann’s Songs of Dawn.
Arts Centre and Venue
Stapleford Granary is an arts centre built on the vision and values of the Association for Cultural Exchange: fostering cultural understanding – from local to worldwide, historical to contemporary - through education. Our cultural curiosity and passion for cross-arts collaboration lies at the heart of what we do, illustrated in our programming, artist residencies, research, workshops and exhibitions. Over the next 5 years, we’ll be exploring more ways to support our belief in the arts to change and enrich lives and envisage new ways of thinking.
