Bach's 48 Preludes and Fugues need no introduction; they are not only the most famous pedagogical musical work every written but also great music. Jill's complete recording is released this year on Signum Classics.

Handel's Harmonious Blacksmith suite is his best-known keyboard work.

Schumann's Scenes from Childhood are a nostalgic, adult's view of childhood.

Chopin's piano music took popular genres and transformed them from salon music to pieces suitable for the concert platform.

Beethoven Op.126 Bagatelles were his last work for the piano and are miniatures of the greatest profundity.

Jill played at this church in October, under the auspices of Quay Arts, and is delighted to return.
