AIDSMemoryUK Presents Music by Dr Joseph Sonnabend on Saturday 7th July 2018
The composing debut of Dr. Joseph Sonnabend at 85 years old, of music written at the height of the battle against AIDS in NYC when he was 65 years old.
Dr Joseph Sonnabend was among the first to identify the Aids syndrome in New York in the early 1980s and one of the foremost campaigners for the needs of his patients. He founded several of the major Aids organisations.
Now his lesser known side is being brought to the fore. In the heat of the Aids battle, Dr Sonnabend was a prolific composer.
Concert to include: Two String Quartets, piano pieces and an interview with Joseph.
Performers: Ixion Ensemble, Michael Finnissy and Neil Georgeson.
All proceeds to #AIDSMemoryUK, the Campaign to establish a national tribute to HIV / AIDS in the UK
Each Concert is £19.50 but both concerts are £30 if booked together (7th July at 730pm & 8th July at 1130am). No late entries.
