An Afternoon Concert with
to be followed by drinks and canapés
The Music Room, Yaxley Hall by kind invitation of Mr. Dominic Richards
at 3pm on Sunday 30th March 2014
A stimulating and fascinating afternoon of music and song: Daryl Runswick (composer, arranger for The King’s Singers, jazz musician, broadcaster) plays an unusual electric double bass in Beethoven’s A major Cello Sonata Op 69. His wife Alison Truefitt accompanies him on the piano. Then the tables are turned and Alison (singer and poet) sings Daryl’s new song cycle Life, suddenly, accompanied on the piano by Daryl.
The twelve songs in the cycle range in style from the concert-hall to the music-hall, from bird- song to boogie-woogie, quoting Mozart, Rossini and Bach on the way. They describe a woman’s life journey, splitting up with a partner, living alone in the countryside as a writer, falling in love twice (with a new place and with a new man) the decline and death of her mother, and her final arrival at some sort of spiritual accommodation.
Tickets £18, booking is essential as numbers are limited.
