For the third successive year, The Doctors’ Orchestra is playing at Cadogan Hall in support of the charity Freedom from Torture. The orchestra is made up of doctors from the UK, Europe and further afield, all of whom are outstanding musicians. Their all-French programme opens with Berlioz’s overture for his youthful opera Les Francs-Juges, followed by Debussy’s haunting Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune. The orchestra is joined by the dazzling young Min-Jin Kym, for Lalo’s evocative Symphonie Espagnol. The evening concludes with Cesar Franck’s highly original Symphony in D minor
Freedom from Torture (formerly The Medical Foundation for the Care of Victims of Torture), is dedicated to the treatment of torture survivors. Since 1985 almost 50,000 people have been referred to it for help. Their holistic approach includes medical consultation, forensic documentation of injuries, therapeutic support and practical help to people who have suffered the most appalling abuse, so that they can start to rebuild their lives.
All proceeds of this concert will go towards supporting this work.
