Scripted by Lucy Parham
Lucy Parham, piano
Patricia Hodge, narrator
Alex Jennings, narrator
Unfortunately, due to filming commitments in Morocco, Alex Jennings will not be appearing as the Narrator in Lucy Parham’s Chopin recital ‘Nocturne’ at The Quarry in February. The good news is that the wonderful Robert Glenister has stepped into the breach and will be performing with Patricia Hodge and Lucy Parham instead.
Apologies for any disappointment, but Robert will be a terrific replacement.
The narrative follows his turbulent relationship with the controversial literary figure George Sand, their time together in Majorca, his fragile health and his ultimate demise in poverty in Paris at the age of 39.
The readings are interspersed with some of his most loved and poignant compositions.
Nocturne was chosen by The Times as “The Best Chopin of the Year” in 2010
