Lansky - The Mob's Money Man at QEH April 27th 2015

Emma is to play for the world premiere of Roland Perrin's "The Mob's Money Man" at the Queen Elizabeth Hall on Monday 27th April. Emma will be the only violinist playing in The Blue Planet Orchestra alongside a jazz singer, narrator and choir. This new work has been commissioned by the Crouch End Festival Chorus. In this vibrant concert drama, composer and jazz musician Roland Perrin spotlights the remarkable life of mobster Meyer Lansky – a key player in the criminal underworld who built an international gambling empire. Infused with Klezmer, New York and Cuban jazz styles, it is a vivid portrait of the ‘Mob’s Accountant’.
