Last concert in Spring Series announced!

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

On Monday 2nd May at 1pm, Southwold-based pianist Nathan Williamson will give the final concert in our ‘Spring’ Series, with which we very much hope to put a long hard winter behind us once and for all!

In this recital Nathan will perform two iconic works of the classical piano repertoire: Mozart’s Sonata in F major K.533, and Schubert’s Sonata in B flat Major D.960. Mozart composed the last movement of this F major Sonata first – a commission for a mechanical organ – before adding the first two movements at a later date. It is a bold and experimental work, featuring some of Mozart’s most heartfelt and expressive music as he searches for new styles and modes of expression.

Schubert’s last completed work, his Sonata in B flat composed when he was only 31 years of age. The work is on an epic scale, unfolding drama and pathos in extraordinary measure. After some dark and extreme outbursts in the opening movements, the final two movements are surprisingly light-hearted and optimistic – such contrasts are one of the works striking and most captivating features.

Do join us for this very special event. The concert will last just under an hour. As well as performing to a live audience the concert will be streamed live via Facebook live, YouTube, and into local care homes. Details on the streaming will be posted here in due course.

If you wish to attend the concert in person please purchase a ticket in advance – we would prefer not to have to sell tickets on the door if at all possible. Tickets can be booked by phone on 0333 666 3366 or online at All tickets are £15 if booked in advance. Seating will be on a first come first served basis, and the southern aisles of the church will be allocated for those who wish to socially distance. 

This recital will conclude the Southwold Music Trust’s programme of live music supporting the local community through the dark days of the pandemic, including several special concerts given to the children of Southwold Primary School. We are immensely grateful to our many sponsors, including the Southwold Trust, Paisley Charitable Trust, and a number of private individuals – and to you our audience!
