Venue, Timing and Cost
Lucy Parham - piano
Henry Goodman - narrator
Known internationally for her ‘Composer Portraits’ in words and music, pianist Lucy Parham presents Elégie to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the birth of composer and pianist Sergei Rachmaninoff.
With a narrative scripted from letters and diaries, this beautiful concert chronicles his life from his youth in Russia, through to his subsequent self-imposed exile in 1917, and finally to California USA, where he remained until his death in 1943. With Russia remaining deeply rooted in his soul, his cultural identity and his longing for his homeland imbue his music. The concert includes many of his best-loved works for solo piano, including a selection of Preludes, Etudes-Tableaux and Moments Musicaux, some of his own transcriptions and the haunting Elégie.
