Family Connections celebrates the 250th anniversary of the Rothschild family, with songs by their friends, teachers and relatives. Charlotte de Rothschild’s career has taken her all over the world. With her wide knowledge of the song repertoire, from different eras, countries and genres, she has created some wonderful themed programmes; the best-known being this “Family Connections” programme which traces the musical history of her forebears with music by, and anecdotes about, the composers who were friends, teachers or ancestors of the Rothschild family during the 19th and 20thCenturies. Charlotte has presented this programme in the U.S.A., Europe, Japan, India, Singapore, Taiwan, Australia and the U.K. It all began in the early ‘90swhen Charlotte discovered a fascinating musical autograph book started by her ancestor, a previous Charlotte de Rothschild.
