A special reading of Adrian Mitchell’s touching, witty play about Erik Satie, interleaving the eccentric composer’s life with the death of Socrates and Hans Christian Anderson’s The Tin Soldier; with some of Satie’s greatest piano music, including the Gymnopédies, Gnossiennes and Sports et Divertissments.
This performance is a tribute to the much-missed poet who died last year. His famous poem To Whom it May Concern (Tell Me Lies about Vietnam) is performed as part of On the Edge of Life: Coming Home From War event at the Bath International Music Festival on Sunday 6 June.
Featuring: Richard Williams actor, Kieron Smith actor, Joanna MacGregor piano
