Absolute Music - Ravel

OPENING / CLOSING DATES
Closed

WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Simon Russell Beale curates a series of evenings inspired by classic works of chamber music. The first will take you on a journey to the Paris that gave birth to Ravel's String Quartet in F, a city witnessing the dawn of the new industrial age and inspiration to a composer obsessed with factories, machines and mathematical precision. Simon and others will read passages from Proust as well as poetry by the likes of Wordsworth, Auden and Larkin to paint a rich canvas against which the prize-winning Navarra Quartet will perform Ravel's exquisite early quartet.
