Sofa Symphony; The Music of Nina Simone
Thurles, Co. Tipperary
27 May 2021
The Sofa Symphony is a live online Listening Party at The Source Arts Centre where music lovers can listen to great works of classical music and in real-time share their reactions and comments with other music lovers.

When Nina Simone was asked would she like to be remembered for her hit 'My Baby Just Cares for Me' she replied that she would prefer to be remembered for this album - ‘Nina Simone and Piano’. For a rarity on vinyl, ‘...and Piano’ captures Nina Simone in 1969 (a year prior to leaving America for good) and returns her to her performance roots: her voice - alone - and accompanied by herself at the piano. Interpreting the music of songwriters as diverse as Randy Newman, Hoagy Carmichael, Leonard Bernstein and Jaques Brel, her skill as an interpreter and storyteller, (it also helps having one of the great jazz voices of all time) is fully on display.
