The first time that someone has written something major on composer Roger Sacheverell Coke since the 1990s: I chat to pianist Simon Callaghan about his forthcoming disc and his academic research into the neglected composer.
Simon Callaghan has been invited to return to Hong Kong next month for a performance of Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto no. 2 with Pro Arte Orchestra.
This invitation comes after Simon joined the orchestra in March of last year for Rachmaninov’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini. Last year’s concert was a great success, and Simon is thrilled to have been invited back for a second Rachmaninov performance in Hong Kong.
Simon Callaghan describes his latest recording as “a collection of characters – a procession, if you like – by two composers who I think go really well together: Poulenc and Schumann.”
