Event description

Description

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.

Acclaimed classical pianist Margaret Fingerhut is touring a very special concert, “Far from the Home I Love”, which sets the stories of some of these composers (told through their own music) against the current climate of troubling attitudes towards refugees and those in exile.

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

Margaret is very generously donating all proceeds from this event to Ripon City of Sanctuary.



"If she's bringing this programme to a venue near you, you'll not only hear an evening of unostentatiously excellent piano playing, but you'll be lending your support to vital work on behalf of present-day refugees."
- Mike Wheeler, Classical Music Daily
