chopin & champagne
nocturne – the romantic life of frederic chopin
HIGHGATEHASHEART is delighted to announce a fundraising concert, “Chopard & Champagne” on Sunday 19th November in support of vital refugee causes.
“Nocturne – The Romantic Life of Frederic Chopin“ is an evening of music and drama conceived by the internationally renowned concert pianist Lucy Parhamwith narrations by the celebrated actors Henry Goodman and Juliet Stevenson(a co-founder of Highgate Has Heart and local resident). The programme of words and music has been scripted and adapted from letters and diaries by Parham, chronicling the romantic life of one the greatest and most popular composers for solo piano – Frédéric Chopin. The narrative follows his turbulent relationship with the controversial literary figure George Sand, their time together in Majorca, his fragile health and his ultimate demise in poverty in Paris at the age of 39. The readings, with Frederic Chopin narrated by Goodman and George Sand by Stevenson, are interspersed with some of his most loved and poignant compositions played by Parham in the evocative setting of Lauderdale House.
Tickets includes drinks reception and concert performance.
Drinks reception from 7pm with concert starting at 8pm. The evening will end at 10pm with a short interval.
“Lucy Parham’s trailblazing evening concerts in which she fuses music and words with the help of some of our most distinguished actors, have become one of the must-see events on the musical calendar.”
BBC Music Magazine 5 stars *****
Proceeds from the evening will be donated on behalf of HighgateHasHeart to the 4 refugees charities we support: Help Refugees, Safe Passage, Islington Centre and Young Roots.
