In the sublime setting of Oxford’s Holywell Music Room, this concert will also present solo and duo music for cello and piano, including two premieres by Australian women composers.
Australians cellist Coral Lancaster and pianist Wendy Hiscocks are teaming up to present a programme of music focused on music by female composers ranging from Fanny Mendelssohn-Hensel and Lili Boulanger to Elisabeth Lutyens. In addition, contemporary composers are well represented with Errollyn Wallen, Rebecca Clarke, Ann Carr-Boyd, Liza Lim and Wendy Hiscocks.
Coral Lancaster graduated with a Masters from the University of Western Australia. In 1997, she moved to the UK and after a position with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra she now has a busy freelance career with the BSO and the Philharmonia Orchestra, giving solo recitals and exploring chamber music with the Lyric Piano Trio and the Jubilee Ensemble.
Wendy Hiscocks studied with Peter Sculthorpe at the University of Sydney before moving to London in 1987. Her music has been performed by major international artists and ensembles internationally.
