Memories from My Land: Margaret Fingerhut's new single in support of City of Sanctuary

During 2019, pianist Margaret Fingerhut devoted a significant amount of time to an amazing piano recital series, Far from the Home I Love which aimed to raise money for City of Sanctuary, an organisation that supports refugees in the UK. 

Margaret's programme for the recital looked at music by composers who were exiled or lived away from home. 

As well as music by Chopin, Grieg, Handel, Prokofiev and Rachmaninov, she commissioned a new piece from Arian, the Kurdish Syrian composer who wrote the stirring Refugee Nation Anthem for the 2016 Rio Olympics.

To help support City of Sanctuary Margaret has now released her performance of Arian's Memories from my Land as a single, and all you have to do is download it. For the cost of a cup of coffee, we can all help support City of Sanctuary. The download link is here:

or from iTunesAmazonMusic, or Spotify.

You can read Margaret's article about her Far from the Home I Love project on the International Piano website, and on her own website.  If you would like to support Margaret's fundraising for City of Sanctuary further, you can donate directly.

Margaret has already raised over £78,000 and her goal is to raise £88,000, £1000 for every key on the piano.
