Clare Hammond

An advocate of modernist and modern piano music, Clare Hammond has distinguished herself through her uncommon repertoire, which include seldom-played keyboard functions by essential but overlooked composers. She’s provided recitals in Britain, notably at Wigmore Hall for the BBC, aswell as across European countries, and provided premieres of several new functions, including compositions by Kenneth Hesketh, Robert Saxton, and David Matthews. Her involvement in the 2014 centenary of Andrzej Panufnik brought her worldwide reputation, and her recording, Reflections: The Single Piano Music of Andrzej and Roxanna Panufnik designated her debut within the BIS label. Her participation with Panufnik’s music led her to co-curate a chamber series using the Brodsky Quartet at King’s Palace in London, and she performed at Warsaw’s Chopin and his European countries Festival as well as the Warsaw Fall months International Event of Modern Music. Carrying on her exploration of seldom-played music, Hammond documented a second recording titled Étude, offering piano tests by Sergey Lyapunov, Unsuk Chin, Karol Szymanowski, and Nikolai Kapustin.
