Tom Hicks in Music at Night

Location: St Mary's Church, Luton LU1 3JF


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.

    Richard Sisson (Chair of Luton Music)
