It is a pleasure to welcome Guernsey-born pianist Tom Hicks back to Luton. His repertoire for this season could hardly be more appropriate for our theme of The Relationship between Literature, Art & Music.
He was inspired to create this recital programme after reading Aldous Huxley’s 1931 collection of essays Music at Night. And so we have a collection of Nocturnes, Rêveries and other introspective and moonlit repertoire. It will be a wonderful musical journey through a penumbral landscape, but perhaps it is worth remembering that the night time is not merely about stillness, quietude and sleep. It is also a time for deep thought, disturbing reflection and tumult of the soul!
Please join us in the beautiful twilight surroundings of St Mary’s Church for Music at Night.
