Music + Word : We are the Music

 

we are the words; we are the music; we are the thing itself’

Virginia Woolf, A Sketch of the Past   

 

In this special edition of Music and Word, live-streamed from the Charleston Hay Barn, we invite you to explore the relationship between music, literature, and painting, with performances from acclaimed concert pianist Melvyn Tan, and readings from leading actor Jack Farthing (Poldark, Blandings).

 

Through the music of Debussy, Ravel, Fauré, and Chopin and the words of Virginia Woolf, Colette and Marcel Proust, we reflect on the connections between the musical, visual and literary worlds, and consider the shared endeavour of these artists: to capture an all-too fleeting experience of life in art – be that music, word or paint – and the incredible joy to be found in rare moments of success.

 

For I hear music, they were saying. Music wakes us. Music makes us see the hidden, join the broken. Look and listen.
