Pianist Lucy Parham returns with the third in her Composer Portraits series. Elégie chronicles the life of composer and pianist Sergei Rachmaninoff in words and music, from his youth in Russia, through his self-imposed exile in 1917 and finally to California, where he died in 1943.
The concert includes many of his best-loved works for solo piano, as well as music by Scriabin and Tchaikovsky, alongside a fascinating narrative drawn from the composer’s letters and diaries, read by Olivier Award-winning actor Henry Goodman.
