SKU: N/A Category:

In the summer of 1923, when the cultural life of London was dominated by the Sitwells and the Bloomsbury Group, the first performance of Façade, William Walton’s setting of Edith Sitwell’s poem sequence, was a succès de scandale. Virginia Woolf was there, Noël Coward walked out.   Ernest Newman said, ‘Walton is a jewel of the first water’.   This startling work still has the power to amaze, amuse and infuriate.

The first half of the concert features three charming short pieces by Haydn, Stravinsky and Mozart.
