Jonathan Powell presents a recital centred around Stockhausen's landmark solo piano pieces and Tristan Murail's dramatic exploration of piano resonances, Territoires de l'oubli.

Programme to include:

  • Karlheinz Stockhausen Klavierstücke 5, 9 & 10
  • Tristan Murail Territoires de l'oubli

Poland-based pianist and composer Jonathan Powell is renowned for his interest in contemporary music and composers of the early 20th century: in particular the music of Scriabin and other Russian modernists, as well as Ives, Szymanowski, Busoni, and others. Over the last decade, concerts have taken him on tours across the US and Europe, alongside recital broadcasts for Radio Netherlands and Radio Deutschland Kultur.

His recent concerto appearances include Brahms’ 2nd (with the Slovak Philarmonic), Liszt’s Malédiction (with the Kiev Soloists), Finnissy’s 2nd Concerto (at the Moscow Conservatoire) and Sørensen’s 2nd (with the Prague Philarmonia under Marian Lejava).
His CD releases encompass the works of Alexander Krein, Felix Blumenfeld, Alexander Goldenweiser, Konstantin Eiges, Georgiy Conus, Leonid Sabaneyev, Egon Kornauth, Janis Mediņš, Kaikhosru Sorabji, Joseph Marx, Isay Dobrowen, Alexander Scriabin, Jean Sibelius and others.

Powell is a self-taught composer – he has recorded several of his own works for BBC broadcasts and has received performances by the London Sinfonietta, the Arditti Quartet, Valdine Anderson, and Nicolas Hodges among others. His articles on many aspects of Russian music appear in the New Grove Dictionary of Music.
