ELEGIE: RACHMANINOFF - A HEART IN EXILE
Lucy Parham - piano. Tim McInnerny - narrator.
Known internationally for her 'Composer Portraits' in words and music, pianist Lucy Parham returns to Hastings International Piano teaming up with one of Britain's best loved actors Tim McInnerny (Black Adder, Nottinghill) with an exciting new programme. Elegie chronicles the life of composer and pianist Sergei Rachmaninoff. The narrative, scripted from letters and diaries, follows Rachmaninoff from his youth in Russia, through his subsequent self-imposed exile in 1917 and finally to California USA, where he died in 1943. This special 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, as well as works by Scriabin and Tchaikovsky.
