Thoroughly Good Classical Music Podcast: Pianist Clare Hammond


Pianist Clare Hammond releases a new disc ‘Variations’ on 5 March featuring piano variations by Hindemith, Copland, Adams and Szymanowski.

It continues the pianist’s deeply felt work advocating active listening in discovery sessions specifically tailored for prisoners. COVID guidelines permitting, Hammond hopes to return to prisons in the UK sharing the repertoire on the disc in live performance sessions.

In Podcast 112 Clare Hammond talks about how she introduces classical music repertoire to a prison community. The music used is Clare Hammond’s recording of Szymanowski’s ‘Variations on a Polish Theme’.
