Nocturne – St John’s Smith Square
29th October 2017
The story of the tender, yet volatile relationship between Frédéric Chopin and the novelist George Sand is told through extracts from their letters and diaries, counterpointed with some of the composer’s best-loved works.
Lucy Parham, piano
Patricia Hodge, narrator
Alex Jennings, narrator
“Parham’s velvet-gloved sonority and rare ability to impart a poetic coherence to Chopin’s stream-of-consciousness flights of inspiration has one listening afresh”
