  • Pierre-Laurent Aimard piano

Julian Anderson created Sensation for Pierre-Laurent Aimard, who gave its first performance at the 2016 Aldeburgh Festival. The eighteen-minute score, set here in company with impressionistic keyboard pieces past and present, explores sense perceptions and their momentary changes.

Aimard performs on a Bechstein instrument from the time of Wigmore Hall’s opening in 1901, recently refurbished by Peter Salisbury.
