It has to Speak! ~ David Pereira’s 70 Not Out! ~ Program 2

September 3, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Program 2 of 70 Not Out! brings to the stage TS Eliot’s monumental poem – The Wasteland.

It will be spoken and acted out brilliantly by Julian Lamb, with live cello sounds responding. This interpretation will delight, equally music, lovers, and those of literature.

Three earlier poems are offered in the first half of the program.
Each is followed by music carefully curated by Glenda Cloughley and David Pereira.

There is Glenda’s extraordinarily beautiful ‘Canticle’ and two new pieces of David’s. These will be performed with Lara Turner (alto flute) and Lillian Frømyhr (voice).

Words and Music in immaculate symbiosis!

The Wasteland

The Waste Land is the most influential poem of the twentieth century. T.S. Eliot’s haunting vision of a spiritually barren post-war Europe is brought to life in a performance which draws out the poem’s vast array of characters as well as its rich lyrical language.

The music will feature passages of improvisation, original composition, and direct quotation from the work of some of the most important composers of the twentieth century, including Sibelius, Shostakovich, and Schoenberg.
