Portsmouth Menuhin Room concert series: Eva Doroszkowska (Piano)

Inspired by liberty and the landscapes surrounding the Baltic Sea this piano recital explores the compositions of three major female composers from Estonia, Latvia, Poland, and Lithuania.A programme of piano music that embodies their indomitable spirit and resilience essential in keeping a national spirit of the Baltic peoples alive. Working in spite of the restrictions of an oppressive regime, these composers ignited the flame of music that would in turn be a symbol of a new independent Baltic culture.

Lūcija Garūta – Meditation, 4 Preludes
Ester Mägi – Three Sea Tableaux
Grażyna Bacewicz – Sonata No. 2
Ester Mägi – The Ancient Kantele

The performance begins at 12.30pm (doors open at noon, unreserved seating). Total running time: 90 minutes, with an interval.
