"Facade" starring Claire Bloom and Humphrey Burton to hit Southwold and Aldeburgh
William Walton's “Façade” and Constant Lambert's “Piano Concerto for Piano and Nine Instruments” will be performed at the following Suffolk venues in late June:-
St Edmund's Church (first half) and St Edmund's Hall, Southwold (second half) - Saturday June 29th 2013
Jubilee Hall, Aldeburgh - Sunday June 30th 2013
Facade is a unique and entertaining piece, setting Edith Sitwell's eccentric poetry to a recital of 1920s dance numbers. The Concerto by Constant Lambert - a close friend of Walton - sits perfectly alongside Façade, with its jazz influences. Having been close friends with Walton himself, Humphrey Burton and Claire Bloom will bring a wealth of experience to their roles.
The solo part in Lambert’s Concerto will be performed by distinguished pianist David Owen Norris, a specialist in 20th century British repertoire. Tickets for either of these events are £15. To book, contact the Southwold Concert Series box office on tel: 01502 726 161.
