Lecture with Paul Hindmarsh – Who was Wilfred Heaton?

August 15 @ 17:15 - 18:00

In the early 1950s Sheffield composer Wilfred Heaton undertook a number of consultation lessons in composition with the distinguished emigre Hungarian teacher Matyas Seiber. The results of this advice were far-reaching on Heaton’s style, as can be heard in this Piano Sonata.

Paul Hindmarsh, a former BBC producer for 21 years now devotes his time to historical and analytical research. British music of the past 150 years is his special field of interest. His Thematic Catalogue of the music of Frank Bridge (1879 – 1941) became the standard reference work on this composer.

Today Paul will talk about Wilfred Heaton and the sonata before it is given the World Premiere by Murray McLachlan.
