“[Kathryn Stott] plays wonderfully, allowing her music fluidity and space; her virtuoso outpourings are formidable.”The Daily Telegraph

The desecration and human destruction caused by two World Wars in the 20th century, was a source of inspiration for a number of composers. Ravel’s rather light-hearted Tombeau de Couperin, written in memory of friends who died fighting in the First World War, is a world away from Strauss’s beautifully intense and mournful Metamorphosen, an emotional homage to the destruction of Germany in World War Two. Separating these is Mozart’s ever-popular Piano Concerto no.21, nicknamed ‘Elivira Madigan’, and performed by Kathryn Stott.
