Cordelia is renowned for her interpretations of the music of Schubert and Schumann and both composers feature in the evening recital. Writing to his future wife, Clara Wieck, Robert Schumann described the first movement of his Fantasie as ‘…the most passionate I have ever composed…’.

The recital opens with Beethoven’s last work for piano. He described the work to his publishers as ‘…probably the best piece of this kind I have written.’
