A concert featuring compositions inspired by Virginia Woolf’s novel

Virginia Woolf “thought of all of her books as music before she wrote them” – a statement which is explored in this concert. The inaugural concert of a short series, the event explores the allusions to music in Woolf's poetic novels as well as the ways in which the author experimented using musical forms in her own writing, but will also go beyond this to look at music which shaped Woolf's attitudes towards feminism, national identity and folk art, and at works written by or for members of the Bloomsbury Group. The concert, organised by Emma Sutton and pianist Lana Bode, intertwines readings with music, including works by David Knotts, Judith Weir and Thea Musgrave, and readings by the actor Frances Thorburn. There will also be a pre-concert talk. See separate listing.

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN MOVED TO THE AUDITORIUM AT THE BYRE THEATRE BUT SEATING IS NOT ALLOCATED FOR THIS EVENT.
