Sarah Williamson (clarinet) and Sam Haywood (piano)

Hosted by the LSE Arts Lunchtime Concert Series

Shaw Library, 6th Floor, Old Building

Sarah Williamson is renowned as a virtuoso clarinettist whose talent has been recognised by concert-goers and critics alike. Sam Haywood has performed in many of the world’s major concert halls, including Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, Philharmonie de Paris, Vienna Konzerthaus and the Wigmore Hall. 

BBC Music Magazine wrote of Sarah: ‘A tenacious player like Williamson doesn’t need gimmicks – her sonorous timbre and natural musicality speak for themselves.’ The Independent hailed her as a ‘superb player’; and The Telegraph praised Sarah’s ‘blend of languor and exuberance.’

Sam embraces a wide spectrum of the piano repertoire and is equally at home as a soloist, chamber musician or working with singers. He has toured extensively as a duo with American violinist Joshua Bell and also with cellist Steven Isserlis.

Performance to include:

Gerald Finzi - Five Bagatelles

Brahms - Sonata for clarinet and piano no 2 in Eb op 120

Kaprálová - April Preludes op.13  Nos.1, 3 and 4

Graham Fitkin - ‘Glass’

Gershwin - 3 preludes (arranged James Cohn)

The next lunchtime concert is on Thursday 2 February and will be performed by Balourdet String Quartet.

Join the LSE Choir and Orchestra on Tuesday 28 March for the LSE Spring Concert in the beautiful surroundings of St Clement Danes Church.

Just economics and politics? Think again. While LSE does not teach arts or music, there is a vibrant cultural side to the School - from weekly free music concerts in the Shaw Library, and an LSE orchestra and choir with their own professional conductors, various film, art and photographic student societies and regular public exhibitions.
