The history of classical music is full of composers who left

their homelands because of war, political upheaval or

persecution. Other composers, who left their countries

for their work, were arguably no less homesick.

Margaret is very generously donating all proceeds to Ripon City of Sanctuary

www.margaretfingerhut.co.uk

Featuring works by Chopin, Grieg, Handel, Haydn, Prokofiev and Rachmaninov.

Margaret has also specially commissioned a new piece by Arian, the Kurdish Syrian composer who wrote the

stirring Refugee Nation Anthem for the 2016 Rio Olympics.

“If she’s bringing this programme to a venue near you, you’ll not only hear an evening of unostentatiously excellent piano playing, but you’ll be lending your support to vital work on behalf of present-day refugees.” – Classical Music Daily

Acclaimed classical pianist Margaret Fingerhut is touring a very

special concert which sets the stories of some of these composers

– told through their own music – against the current climate of

troubling attitudes towards refugees and those in exile.
