Charleston Farmhouse, East Sussex
An eagerly anticipated return to this lovely special venue for another evening in our series Music and Word at Charleston. I am also delighted that Sir Derek Jacobi will be joining me on stage for this evening’s event.
|The aim of these concerts in this series of Music and Word is to fuse music and literature, and many of the readings also have a relevance to Charleston itself and its illustrious history.
Texts by Dylan Thomas, Virginia Woolf, Proust and Karen Blixen.
Music by Debussy, Messiaen, Brett Dean, Brahms, Britten and Poulenc and Kevin Volans.
|Sir Derek Jacobi
|This will promise to be a very special night for all. Music and literature intertwining with each other always has a mesmerising effect, and I am hoping the audience will be dreaming all the way home! Well, perhaps not literally!!
