Graham Lynch February Performances with Constance Chow & Beau Soir Ensemble

Graham Lynch

Graham Lynch’s Sideshow for piano will be performed by dazzling pianist Constance Chow in her February concerts!

On Wednesday 2 February Constance plays at St Nicholas Church, Brighton, and on Thursday 17 February she plays at St. Olave’s Church, London EC3.

Sideshow was composed for Constance Chow who gave the first performance in Cambridge in the summer of 2021. The music comprises seven short pieces which each have very individual characters, and although their initial inspiration came from the circus drawings of Seurat they also encompass other influences including Baudelaire and Pessoa. The message behind the music relates to the idea of life as an ‘illusion’, that we become characters in a stage-show, an existential drama of our own making.

  1. Prelude
  2. The Ballad of London Fields
  3. Bricolage
  4. The Old Acrobat
  5. Langsam
  6. Cock and Harlequin
  7. Spiritualised in Night
