World premiere Vanessa Lann – One/Life

Geplaatst op

On January 31th the piano quintet One/Life by Vanessa Lann will have its world premiere by Jack Liebeck, Alexandra Raikhlina, Philip Dukes, Gemma Rosefield and Katya Apekisheva. This premiere will be at Sage Hall 2, The Sage, Gateshead (UK)…   

This work was commissioned for the closing concert of the Brundibár Arts Festival in Newcastle and Gateshead, UK. Launched in 2016, the annual Brundibár Arts Festival is the only recurring British festival dedicated to artists who were victims of the Holocaust. In addition to celebrating the work of those artists murdered or who perished, the Festival regularly commissions a new composition as a message of hope in times of adversity.

This concert is dedicated to the memory of Hanni Begg (1929-2017) who was torn from home as a child but narrowly escaped deportation. She was the only family member to survive the war. Hanni was also a keen supporter of the Festival from its inception.
