Take a trip down memory lane as pianist Isata Kanneh-Mason looks back in a nostalgic evening inspired by the imaginations and experiences of childhood. Despite only being in her mid-twenties, Isata Kanneh-Mason brings a mature perspective to popular children’s tunes. Mozart’s playful variations on Twinkle Twinkle Little Star set us up for a spirited and playful evening, which also features Debussy and Schumann’s depictions of childhood scenes. Eleanor Alberga says of her piece Cwiceolfor, (an ancient spelling of mercury, an element that fascinated her in her youth), ‘I suppose the alchemy lies in transforming my childhood experience into a piece of music’.

Isata Kanneh-Mason is an artist already making enormous waves. The eldest of the infamously talented siblings, recipient of the 2021 Leonard Bernstein Award and now 21–22 European Concert Hall Organisation Rising Star, Isata Kanneh-Mason is now an artist of international renown. We’re delighted to finally be able to present her solo Barbican debut.
