The Music of Anthony Burgess
Welcome to our exhibition about the music of Anthony Burgess.
Anthony Burgess is best known for his novels, but he was also a talented and prolific composer who wrote music in many genres and styles: symphonies, concertos, musicals, chamber music, film soundtracks, songs and much more. This exhibition takes seven of his most important works as a starting point to explore his fascinating musical career.
