You would not need to read the book to come to this concert. The story of 'Alicia's gift' is a good pretext to listen to beautiful compositions.
So let's meet either before the concert for a drink from 6:15 at the Scarsdale Tavern or directly at Leighton House before 7:30 (starting time for the concert) for:
Alicia's gift Words and Music with VIV McLEAN piano and JESSICA DUCHEN author of 'Alicia's gift'. The recital will include works by CHOPIN, MANUEL DE FALLA, DEBUSSY, GRANADOS, MESSIAEN & RAVEL.
For this event, a special price for members of this meetup. I can get you ticket at £15 (including a glass of wine or refreshement) instead of £18.
