FRANK BRIDGE Piano Sonata
DEBUSSY Berceuse héroïque and Pièce pour l’oeuvre du Vêtement du blessé
MEDTNER Piano Sonata op.30

Each movement of Ravel's Le Tombeau de Couperin commemorates a fallen comrade, while Frank Bridge's powerful Sonata is dedicated to the memory of his student Ernest Farrar who was killed on the Western Front in 1918. The programme is completed by the tempestuous 'War' Sonata (1917) by Nikolay Medtner, and two relatively unknown late miniatures by Debussy.
