About the event

Kirklees Year of Music 2023, &Piano & HLF present… In a first-time Festival collaboration with the &Piano Music Festival, join us in The Civic, Slaithwaite, for an evening of songs featuring words and poetry exploring the theme of music and the constant power and influence it has had on our lives for generations.

Music has been a source of inspiration for authors around the world, for centuries, attempting to put into words the feeling and effect that music has on themselves and society.

Pianist Christopher Pulleyn (Artistic Director of &Piano) is joined by two acclaimed young singers, soprano Georgie Malcolm and baritone Billy Kyle, who will perform an hour-long programme of music exploring how composers have used texts to express in words their own love for their craft. Featuring music and words from poets and composers from around the world and as far back as the 17th century, including music by Henry Purcell, Franz Schubert, Claude Debussy and words and poetry by Shakespeare, John Dryden, Virginia Woolf and Ruth Bader Ginsberg.
