Concert: The Musical Life of Anthony Burgess: Bridge, Elgar & Tippett with the Gildas Quartet
- Fri 28 Mar 2014
- 7:30 pm
Our Burgess music collection is almost as extensive as our collection of the author’s books and manuscripts. This concert offers the opportunity to hear chamber works from three of the 20th Century English composers who influenced Burgess’s own musical compositions, and who Burgess liked to listen to when he wasn’t working away at the typewriter.
