30. COFFEE CONCERT: REBECA OMORDIA PIANO

Monday 25th July, 11:00 am

Event Navigation

Rebeca Omordia is a pioneering virtuoso whose revelatory album African Pianism has changed the face of classical music. From a delicate Nocturne expressing Moroccan composer Nabil Benabdeljalil’s intense joy at roaming the Middle Atlas mountains after lockdown, to the pianistic recreation of Nigerian drum techniques by Christian Onyeji, and David Earl’s nostalgia for childhood fishing trips with his father in South Africa, this is ear- and eye-opening music.

‘wild and shimmering piano gems’ The Guardian

‘Rebeca Omordia is half Romanian, half Nigerian – and it’s a powerful combination! Her technique knows no bounds but, more importantly, she plays with a depth of insight and understanding which is all too rare today’  Julian Lloyd Webber
