A piano music debut will be the centrepiece of a remembrance concert in Kensal Green to mark the centenary of the First World War.

The vicar of St John’s Church, in Kilburn Lane, is hosting an hour long classical concert on Friday at 7.30pm, in support of the Royal British Legion.

The piece, written by Polish composer Roman Ryterband, is intended to be played with the left hand.

The music is yet to be performed in England and will be played alongside classics by Mozart and Elgar.

Vicar Fr David Ackerman said: “The concert will include piano music written for one hand to serve as a reminder of the human cost of war but also a celebration of resilience and the overcoming of hardship.”

The concert is free to attend and there will be collections for the RBL.

St John’s will join the national commemoration on November 11 by laying a wreath at the church war memorial.
