Remarkable story telling at the St James Theatre now in Victoria.The original was where Oscar Wilde did many of his first performances…long ago pulled down in the name of progress. Beautiful theatre and Brasserie but the most remarkable thing was the story that Mona Golabek had to tell about her mother fleeing Vienna on the Kindertransport that saved so many children bravely sent to safety by their parents sacrifice. A remarkable pianist,student of Fleisher I believe,kept us spellbound telling the story of her mother realising in turn her mothers dream for her of becoming a concert pianist and performing the Grieg concerto. And what a virtuoso performance it was.The hardest thing to play and at the same time recount a story. Last performance tomorrow…..I got a return and wish all who would not want to miss this my good fortune.
