In pictures: pianist Thomas Kelly delights audience at first Intimate Engagements concert of 2022/23

9 November 2022 College life

Around 80 people including Fellows, Life Members and Friends of Clare Hall joined us for a concert by pianist Thomas Kelly on Saturday 5 November, as he put into perspective three works belonging to the genre of themes and variations.

The concert was the first in a series of four Intimate Engagements recitals planned for this academic year.

We hope you enjoy the following photographs from the night, captured by Jeremy Peters:

Intimate Engagements Artistic Director, Patrick Hemmerlé, welcomed the audience.
Thomas Kelly played Brahms – Variations on a Theme by Schumann, opus 9; Beethoven – Eroica Variations, opus 35; and Schumann – Symphonic Etudes in Variation form, opus 13.
Attendees were likely pleased to shelter from the inclement Bonfire Night weather.
Much applause was shared for Thomas as he closed the first half of the recital.
