Alexia Sloane's 'Elegy for Aylan' - Classic FM Broadcast

Wed 27 Dec 2017 20:00

Alexia Sloane's Classic FM 25th Birthday Commission receives its premiere broadcast as part of Classic FM's Full Works Concert with Lucy Coward. The performers are players from the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra.

Elegy for Aylan is a response to the powerful image of the drowned Syrian child refugee Aylan Kurdi taken in 2015. Alexia says she wanted to demonstrate how classical music is a potent tool which can allow us to express freely emotions which may otherwise remain stifled.
