Clare Hammond & RNCM Perform Adam Gorb ’24 Preludes’ for piano

On Tuesday 21 June Adam Gorb’s 24 Preludes for piano will receive their concert premiere in full at the Royal Northern College of Music.

Adam Gorb

The first 12 preludes will be performed by RNCM students and the final 12 by Clare Hammond for whom the preludes were originally written.

The 24 Preludes of Adam Gorb follow the examples of Chopin and Shostakovich in describing a cycle of fifths – though his descend, whereas Chopin’s and Shostakovich’s go up. As with those earlier exemplars, and also the preludes of Debussy, Rachmaninov and others, Gorb’s are miniature studies of personality and mood – charming, brittle, perky, languorous, bat-flight fast, borderline violent or tender, as required.

Martin Anderson, Executive Producer, Toccata Classics

Adam Gorb’s 24 Preludes are proudly available for perusal and purchase on Composers Edition website, both as the whole set or as individual pieces.
