Jill Crossland

Domenico Scarlatti – Sonata in G, L349/K116
Johann Sebastian Bach – Selection from the well-tempered Clavier Book 1
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – Piano Sonata in C, K330

Jill plays all over the country and abroad, including numerous appearances at London’s South Bank and Wigmore Hall, and venues such as Bridgewater Hall, Sage Gateshead and the Vienna Musikverein. Her recordings on Warner Classics, Signum Classics and other labels have been critically acclaimed and she is widely regarded as a leading interpreter of the baroque and classical repertoire, featuring in Classic FM’s Hall of Fame. Her complete recording of J S Bach’s “well-tempered Clavier” has been described as ‘a remarkable achievement, ranking with the finest’ by the Penguin Guide. Jill will play some of these Preludes and Fugues, arguably the greatest keyboard pedagogical work ever written, in her recital.

Jill’s programme also includes a sonata by Domenico Scarlatti (L349/K146 in G), one of many written while the composer was in the service of the Iberian royal families, and Mozart’s sunny Piano Sonata in C, K330 written during the composer’s first years in Vienna.
