Walton – Facade

In January I conducted two performances of ‘Facade’, music by William Walton and poetry by Edith Sitwell, with the Auricle Ensemble in the Gaiety Theatre, Ayr, and at the Linlithgow Academy.

Really fascinating to work with such unique text – and so refreshing to be dealing with spoken text, not sung. Joanna Tope and Crawford Logan were the reciters for our performances – what a privilege to work with such brilliant actors!
