The English-born trailblazer for women in music, Ethel Leginska, was not only a world-class pianist and conductor. She was a renowned composer whose works were performed in some of the world’s leading concert halls and by orchestras such as the L.A. Philharmonic, New York Symphony, London Symphony and Berlin Philharmonic.

In this concert, Dr Lee Tsang (Senior Lecturer in Performing Arts at Edge Hill University) explores aspects of Leginska’s appealing and distinctive compositional voice by introducing today’s audiences to the musical imagery of her forgotten songs and piano works.
