Curlew River, Benjamin Britten and William Plomer’s synthesis of a Noh play and Christian parable set in medieval East Anglia, is a unique and extraordinary work – a piece shot through with the strange, exotic sounds of bells, un-tuned drums, organ and chamber ensemble. Britten Sinfonia presents an afternoon of talks and music led by Dr Kate Kennedy, exploring this fascinating work.
