O'Hora comments:
"In a time when we've all had much to contend with, there could be no more inspiring musical statement of the positive struggle towards genuine and powerful resolution than the major works of Beethoven. These three sonatas exemplify this and culminate in Beethoven’s supreme expression of this noble struggle."

Tuesday, 6 July 2021 - 8:00pm

In this Book Club meeting we'll discuss The Invention of Morel by Argentine writer Adolfo Bioy Casares (1940).

A masterfully paced and intellectually daring plot. Like the best science fiction, of which this is an exemplar, Bioy’s themes have become ever more relevant to a society beholden to image. It is this keenness of thought and expression that buttresses Borges’s claim of the novella’s perfection. - The Times

Tuesday 6th July 2021 from 8pm

Until we can meet without face coverings, we will be holding book club meetings online by video conference (Zoom). All those on the book club mailing list will receive a link to join each month's Zoom meeting. If you are not on the mailing list and would like to be, please send an email to Katrina Wilkinson, Office Administrator (office.administrator@clarehall.cam.ac.uk) confirming your Clare Hall connection and putting the following as the email title: I would like to join the Book Club mailing list.

Saturday, 24 July 2021 - 8:00pm

Award-winning Russian pianist Victor Maslov will be playing at Clare Hall, Cambridge, to raise funds and awareness for the Raymond Nicolet Trust on Saturday 24 July from 8pm.

Coming of an eminent musical family Victor gave his first concert performance at the age of nine.  He studied initially at the Gnessin Moscow Special School of Music, and also took masterclasses with the great Dmitry Bashkirov. International recognition came fully ten years ago with a concert at New York’s Carnegie Hall, where he was acclaimed for the breath of his mastery of the repertoire. Indeed, listening closely to his recordings reveals the depth of empathy for the singular properties of composition in all the main historical idioms: baroque, romantic and modernist. In the last decade he has played with numerous major orchestras internationally and won many piano competitions, a rise crowned by his winning the Moscow Rachmaninov piano competition in 2020.

Victor currently holds the prestigious Carne Trust Fellowship at the Royal College of Music in London where he is studying with Professor D. Alexeev and V. Latarche. It is a distinctive feature of this Fellowship that the holder is an ambassador for the college and contributes to its life and public profile in diverse ways.

Programme:

J.Vella Sonatina

J.Haydn Sonata in b-minor Hob.XVI/32

S.Rachmaninov Etudes-Tableaux op.39 no. 4 and 9

M.Mussorgsky Pictures at an Exhibition 

Location: Dining Hall, Clare Hall, Herschel Road, Cambridge, CB3 9AL.

Tickets: £15 (adults), £10 (children/students)
