Isata Kanneh-Mason, piano (in Groton, MA)

Meadow Hall - Groton Hill Music Center

British pianist Isata Kanneh-Mason’s star has rapidly risen as she continues to astound and inspire audiences of all backgrounds—aficionados and newcomers alike—with her dazzling interpretations of standard and overlooked repertoire.  

She returns to the Series for the third time—making her solo recital debut—as she takes center stage for two special concerts: she inaugurates Celebrity Series’ partnership with Groton Hill Music Center and launches the Boston season at Jordan Hall. 

Don’t miss an unforgettable appearance by “a profound and greatly gifted artist who radiates warmth, joy, and much-needed musical sunshine” (Gramophone). 

The program will include Fanny Mendelssohn’s sweeping Easter Sonata, long attributed to her brother Felix and only performed under the correct authorship since 2017. Mendelssohn was just 23 when she penned the work, and—in the capable hands of another young woman from a prodigious musical family—we can’t wait to hear it! 

Haydn’s late sonata in C Major (one of the “London” sonatas) sets a playful, energetic tone, while Schumann’s evocative Kinderszenen closes the program with a wistful look back on youthful impressions.  

This performance will also take place in Boston on October 14 at 8:00 PM.
