Anthony Burgess was a prolific and accomplished composer, but his music has been largely – and unjustly – neglected. Join us for a chamber concert of Burgess’s songs, including:
Brides of Enderby – settings of the bawdy poems of Burgess’s fictional alter-ego, the poet F. X. Enderby (Soprano, flute, oboe, cello, piano/harpsichord);
End Of Another Home Holiday – settings of the poetry of DH Lawrence (Soprano, flute, oboe, cello, piano/harpsichord);
La pioggia nel pineto – settings of the poetry of the Italian writer and nationalist leader Gabriele D’Annunzio (Tenor and piano);
Curated and conducted by Gavin Wayte.
