The Haldon String Quartet and the poet, Lawrence Sail, will be collaborating for an hour of music and poetry online from their homes, reflecting on the theme of being at home, especially during lockdown.
Haldon at Home – Saturday 27th February at 7.30pm
We will be sharing duets and solos specially recorded in our homes, interspersed with live poetry readings from Lawrence Sail and introductions from the musicians, plus a question and answer session at the end.
Lindsay Braga & Steve Banks: violins
Andrew Gillett: viola
Rebecca Allnatt: cello
Michael Allnatt: double bass
Fuchs, 3 pieces from Duos for violin and viola Op.60
Bach, Sarabande from Suite no 2 in D minor
Elgar, “Salut d’Amour”
Bloch, “Prayer” arr. for cello and double bass
Martinu, Madrigal no 1 for violin and viola.
a short selection of Trad reels for fiddle.
Lawrence’s latest books are Guises (poetry, published by Bloodaxe Books) and Accidentals (prose, published by Impress Books.)
” I would wrap up Accidentals by Lawrence Sail, with illustrations by Erica Sail. It’ s a book of essays by a terrific writer and poet of a certain age, looking back over his life. Illuminating, gently funny, deeply enjoyable.”
