Book now for special pre-Christmas piano concert

This December, the Fitzwilliam hosts a performance by internationally acclaimed composer and pianist Tara Kamangar. The last of the Museum's popular concert series showcasing Persian music to complement the exhibition Epic of the Persian Kings, this performance on Saturday 11 December will present compositions for piano inspired by the Shahnameh.

Bringing rarely-heard works by Iranian composers of the past century to today's audiences, California native Tara has been praised as a "huge talent" (Evening Standard) and a "world class-musician who excels at blending the best of Western and Middle-Eastern compositions" (Gulf News). This exclusive performance in the galleries of the Museum is her final date on her four-week tour of Europe, and will also feature Tara's own compositions, as well as works by a variety of Iranian composers.

Tara Kamangar, piano Saturday 11 December 2010, 18:30-20:30 £12 (£10 concessions), booking essential via Cambridge City Centre Box Office, Wheeler Street, Cambridge: 01223 357851
