‘Significantus’: Composer’s Response to Climate Breakdown – Masterclass presented by Lola Perrin

Lola Perrin will present a unique masterclass where she will discuss her Piano Suite IX Significantus, which is a piano and spoken word project inspired by writings about the climate change. Extracts from the work will be played by the composer. “Currently the target set by the Paris Agreement to keep the temperature rise to under two degrees will not be met because the rate at which we are reducing greenhouse gas emissions is too slow. . . I created Significantus, a keyboard conversation about climate change, because I want to stimulate more people to talk about how we can increase our ambition to deal with global warming…”

Lola is a composer and pianist who has published nine piano suites and has two CDs on general release. She founded ClimateKeys in which scores of pianists are performing with guest speakers to engage audiences in talking about climate change across the world. She has performed extensively in the UK, in Europe and in the USA and her works for solo and multiple pianos are performed by concert pianists internationally. She works in live performance with a range of collaborators including authors, filmmakers and economists, scientists and other researchers.
