Following the success of Callaghan’s most recent CD ‘The Music of Roger Sacheverell Coke’, he has been invited to perform at the Rarities of Piano Music Festival 2016. This prestigious festival, which takes place in the north of Germany, near the Danish border in the North Frisian district capital of Husum, has been held every year since 1987.
It is dedicated solely to seldom-played works of the piano repertoire and has quickly made its way from insider’s tip to a renowned festival.
Simon’s programme for this recital on 20 August 2016 in the magical surroundings of the Festival’s main venue, Husum Castle, comprises:
Bax Two Russian Tone Pictures
Coke Variations on an Original Theme in C minor Op.37
Hough Four Rodgers and Hammerstein Transcriptions
