With her recording of Adam Gorb’s Preludes by Toccata Records hot off the press, we’re delighted to welcome Clare Hammond to the RNCM.

Join her and students from our School of Keyboard Studies as they perform new works by our Head of Composition in an evening showcasing contemporary music for piano.


‘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
