Portrait of Music and Words

Portrait of Music and Words – Saturday 15 October 2011 – 7.30pm – RNCM Concert Hall

A celebration of music  and words, this programme brings together two composers deeply influenced by the drama of written and spoken word.

Benjamin Britten brings Rimbaud’s Les Illuminations to life with an extraordinary world of string sonorities.

Mozart’s incredibly intuitive understanding of human emotion and drama is demonstrated in a selection of arias sung by soprano Rebecca Bottone. The programme finishes with Mozart’s intensely emotional 40th symphony. As part of Manchester Literature Festival, poet Michael Symmons Roberts will narrate a new work inspired by this evening’s programme of music.
