Concert at the New North London Synagogue


We had a wonderful concert on 10th November 2019 with Ensemble Émigré and RCM colleagues Christina Lawrie, Danny Driver and Ashley Solomon at the New North London Synagogue with about 130 people in the audience. The programme included the Huyton Suite for flute and two violins by Hans Gál (1890-1987), written for the only instruments available in the Huyton Internment Camp near Liverpool in 1940, the beautiful Elegy for Cello and Piano by the composer and piano virtuoso Franz Reizenstein (1911-1968), played by the wonderful Gemma Rosefield, and excerpts from the breathtaking Tagebuch in Tönen (Diary in Music) by Robert Kahn, a cycle of 1160 piano pieces written mostly in the composer’s secluded exile in Biddenden, Kent in the 1940s, complemented by short excerpts from letters and other historical documents.
