Nocturne: The Romantic Life of Frederic Chopin

Lucy Parham, piano with readings by Rula Lenska & Lloyd Owen: The story of the tender, but volatile relationship between Frederic Chopin and the novelist George Sand told through extracts from their letters and diaries, counterpointed with some of the composer's best-loved works. All proceeds go to the charity 'Help People with Autism in Poland'.


“Lucy Parham's trailblazing evening concerts in which she fuses music and words with the help of some of our most distinguished thespians have become one of the must-see events on the musical calendar.” BBC Music Magazine April 2014


Acknowledged as one of Britain's finest pianists, Lucy Parham applies her sensitivity and imagination not only to concertos and recitals, but also to portraits in words and music of such composers as Schumann, Chopin, Liszt and Debussy.
