A remarkably gifted artist – Gramophone


Anthony Hewitt is regarded as one of Britain’s most gifted pianists, and, since winning the prestigious William Kapell Competition in Washington D.C., has enjoyed a prolific performing career spanning two decades, including concerto appearances with the National Symphony Orchestra in the U.S.A., and the English Chamber Orchestra at London’s Royal Festival Hall. He has given eight recitals at Wigmore Hall and received critical acclaim for recordings on Naxos, Divine Art, and Champs Hill Records, and recently recorded for Decca.

He enjoys a diverse musical life as festival director, professor of piano at Birmingham Conservatoire, and chamber musician; the latest CD of his trio (Dimension Piano Trio), was described in The Sunday Times as “played with a rare richness and depth”.

Cabaret Beyond Borders at Café Yukari, Kew

from Paris and Berlin to Zurich, Vienna, Budapest and Moscow….

Elena dtm Lorenzi – vocals
Stefano Marzanni – piano

International duo Elena Lorenzi and Stefano Marzanni take us on a journey into the fascinating world of cabaret from Parisian bistros to decadent 1930’s Berlin, and the underground clubs of Budapest, Vienna, Zurich and Moscow.

Accompanied by the charismatic pianist Stefano Marzanni, Elena Lorenzi is not only a great singer and performer but also a passionate cabaret curator, dedicated to telling the real story – from lyrical romance and love, to dark, biting satire, politics and existentialist reflections on the meaning of life.

In Cabaret Beyond Borders Elena and Stefano bring to life songs made famous by Edith Piaf and Dalida, from the satire of Mischa Spoliansky to the revolutionary spirit of Kurt Weill and the dynamic French chansons of Léo Ferré.

Tickets £18 each
