Lucy Parham's Sunday Matinees

Lucy Parham - Beloved Clara
Lucy Parham is returning to St John's Smith Square on Sunday afternoons with a second series of her composer portraits featuring a spoken narrative from a series of distinguished actors, and piano music from Lucy. The series opens on Sunday 24 September with Beloved Clara which looks at the relationship between Robert and Clara Schumann and their close friendship with Brahms, and Lucy Parham is joined by Harriet Walter and Tim McInnerny.

Further ahead, on Sunday 29 October, the subject turns to Chopin with Nocturne: The Romantic Life of Chopin with Lucy joined by Patricia Hodge and Alex Jennings. Then on Sunday 28 January 2017 Lucy is joined by Simon Russell Beale to celebrate the centenary of Debussy's death with Reverie: The Life and Loves of Debussy. On 4 March 2018, Odyssey of Love: Liszt and his Women features Joanna David and Robert Glenister, whilst on 15 April 2018, Elegie: Rachmaninoffl a heart in exile features Henry Goodman. Each event is followed by a post-concert discussion.
