Acclaimed as a “pianist of extraordinary gifts” (Gramophone) and “immense power” (The Times), Clare Hammond is recognised for the virtuosity and authority of her performances. In 2016, she won the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Young Artist Award in recognition of outstanding achievement. Clare completed a BA at Cambridge University, where she obtained a double first in music, and undertook postgraduate study with Ronan O’Hora at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama.

This recital of Romantic music celebrates the legacy of recently rediscovered composer Hélène de Montgeroult, fêted as “the missing link between Mozart and Chopin”.

A contemporary of Mozart and pioneer of the Romantic style that foreshadowed that of Chopin, Hélène de Montgeroult wrote 114 études for her student, Johann Baptist Cramer, between 1788 and 1812, 29 of which have been carefully selected by Clare for her latest album which includes 12 world premiere recordings.
