135. THE PIANO PLAYER OF BUDAPEST: A TRUE STORY OF HOLOCAUST SURVIVAL, MUSIC AND HOPE
Roxanne de Bastion, Annabel Venning
Sunday 30th June 16:30 (60 Min)
Evelyn Partners Spiegeltent
When her father died, singer-songwriter Roxanne de Bastion inherited a piano she knew had been in her family for over a hundred years. But it was only when she found a cassette recording of her grandfather, Stephen, playing one of his compositions that the true and almost unbelievable history of the piano, this man and her family began to unravel. By piecing together his cassette recordings, unpublished memoirs, letters and documents, Roxanne sings out her grandfather's story of music and hope and how he survived the horrors of the Holocaust in Hungary. As the sun sets on the final event of an amazing festival week, sit back and relax as Roxane performs two of her grandfather's songs live.
