Pianist Imogen Cooper will continue the international concert season at The Hexagon in Reading on Saturday, March 8.

Pianist Imogen Cooper will continue the international concert season at The Hexagon in Reading on Saturday, March 8.

The programme will include Schumannâ??s Romanze in F# Major Op.28 No.2 and Clara Weickâ??s Romaze in B Major.

Imogen said: â??My selection of works in the first half of this programme stems from the closeness between Robert and Clara Schumann neé Wieck, and the loving  influence they had on each other. That each wrote a beautiful Romanze (no doubt with the other in mond) was irresistable.â?�

The performance will also include works by Brahms and Schubert. There will be a free pre-concert talk at 6.15pm in the Town Hall before the concert at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £12 to £23. Box office 0118 960 6060 or www.readingarts/concerthall
