Concert of the pianist Isata Kanneh-Mason from Wigmore Hall in London, in live streaming, review by Daniela Domenici

Today, international women’s day, Wigmore Hall has offered us a beautiful concert by a young, very talented and passionate woman pianist, Isata Kanneh-Mason, who has chosen three women composers, two contemporaries, the British Natalie Klouda and the Russian Sofia Gubaidulina, and one of the 19th century, the German Clara Wieck Schumann.

I didn’t know any of these musical pieces so I have had the occasion to enrich and improve my classic music culture thanks to Isata’s choices and to Wigmore Hall which offers us many splendid concerts despite the pandemic.

Isata has begun with three pieces by Clara Wieck, then Klouda’s Nightscapes and Gubaidulina’s Chaconne and has ended with Clara Wieck again and her Piano sonata in G minor
