Russian Singer Irina Ektova in the Newsroom

21 November 2018 at 5.30 p.m.

 I am delighted to announce a short concert in the Newsroom on Wednesday, 21 November 2018 at 5.30 p.m. The event will feature my friend Irina Ektova, who will sing a selection of love songs in English, French and her native Russian, with myself on piano. Between 2005 and 2010 Irina and I were colleagues at the British International School Moscow, where Irina taught French and I taught Music. Songs in English will include classics by Gershwin, Cole Porter and Rodgers and Hart; in French ‘Les feuilles mortes’ (better known to English audiences as ‘Autumn leaves’) and ‘Champs Elysees’; and in Russian some celebrated romances, including ‘Yah vass lyubill’ (‘I loved you’) – words by Alexander Pushkin. The concert will be very informal, with the bar open and food and drink available as normal.
