The French pianist and composer Anne Lovett helped the Institut Francais in South Kensington to celebrate Bastille Day by live-streaming a recital on-line. She is returning to the Institut on Thursday 8 October 2020, with cellist Romain Malan for a recital to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Diaphonique, the Franco-British fund for contemporary music. The recital will be presented in mixed form, with a live-socially distanced audience and streamed on-line, with people able to choose in which form they participate.

The repertoire for the concert includes music by Faure and Massenet (including the Meditation from his opera Thais), as well as works by the Franco-American composer Betsy Jolas (born 1926), one of Lovett's own pieces and concluding with Astor Piazzolla's Grand Tango

Created in 2010, the Diaphonique fund supports collaborative projects of classical contemporary music between France and the United Kingdom. It funds commissions, concerts, tours, residencies and educative projects.

Full details from the Institut Francais website.
