Truly a remarkable pianist’

The Times on Mark Bebbington

Capturing the Castle


Thursday 27 June, 1.00pm (no interval)

St Lawrence Jewry

Tickets £15 

A lunchtime programme of evocative works for solo piano with eclectic literary connections. John Ireland's haunting portrait of Guernsey is laced with references to Pomponius Mela, Swinburne and Victor Hugo, while Robert Matthew-Walker conjures in music perhaps the greatest of all Shakespearean tragedies. Bach and Debussy are the soundtrack to growing up and falling in love in heady high summer for Cassandra Mortmain, heroine of Dodie Smith's coming of age classic, I Capture the Castle.
