Tom Poster performs piano repertoire by Gluck, Beethoven, Grieg, Chopin and Gershwin at the Hay Festival.

Pianist Tom Poster performs at St Mary's Church, Hay-on-Wye. Included in his recital is Beethoven's Sonata No 15 in D major, Op 28, which the publisher Cranz nicknamed "Pastorale". Tom Poster also performs Chopin's Polonaise-Fantasy in A flat major, Op 61, in which Chopin's searching development of the polonaise form initially gave him troube in deciding what to call the work.
