Dame Imogen Cooper is considered legendary for her consummate interpretation of classical and romantic repertoire. She has performed with revered orchestras, including the London Symphony Orchestra, New York Philharmonic, and Berliner Philharmoniker, and has appeared in the world’s most famous venues as a soloist, lieder partner, and chamber musician. She is also invested in nurturing future talent and founded the Imogen Cooper Music Trust in 2015 to mentor young pianists.
Her program at the Phillips begins with two arrangements of chorales by J.S. Bach, one by the great 20th-century pianist Wilhelm Kempf and the other by the late romantic Italian composer, pianist, and teacher Ferrucio Busoni. These are followed by Franz Schubert's intriguing Sonata D. 840, "Reliquie," one of the composer's unfinished works. Cooper continues with Thomas Ades's Darkness Visible and concludes with Ludwig van Beethoven's enduring Piano Sonata No. 31 in A-flat major, Op. 110.
