Event description

Description

In 2019, Margaret embarked on a special piano recital series, working with “City of Sanctuary” to raise money to support refugees in the UK.

The history of classical music is full of composers who left their homelands because of war, political upheaval or fear of persecution. Other composers who had to move country because of their work were arguably no less homesick. This concert tells the stories of some of these composers through their piano music. They resonate with the current climate of troubling attitudes towards refugees and those in exile. “Far from the Home I Love” is designed to give a cultural context to the theme of migration.

Her illuminating and varied programme includes works by Chopin, Grieg, Handel, Haydn, Prokofiev and Rachmaninov. Margaret has also commissioned a new piece by Arian, the Kurdish Syrian composer who wrote the Refugee Nation Anthem for the 2016 Olympics.

Refreshments will be available after the concert

The funds raised from this concert will be donated to The Lewes Organisation in Support of Refugees and Asylum Seekers (LOSRAS)
