Reader Samuel West and the UtterJazz musical ensemble pay homage to WH Auden and Benjamin Britten.
21 July 2013
Reader: Samuel West, with the Utter Jazz musical ensemble.
The sinewy power of WH Auden's words together with the beautful music of Benjamin Britten, provide inspiration for a vibrant reworking of their 1930s songs. Auden's experimentation is refleted in diverse styles infused with classical sounds and unique improvisations.
An exciting homage to two of the most influential voices of the 20th century.
