Charles Causley: A Musical Celebration
July 13, 2017 at 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm| £3 - £14
The next major Centenary event in celebration of Charles Causley is taking place in Launceston Town Hall as part of the Dante String Quartet: “Tamar Valley Festival”.
7.30pm, “Singing Games”: Dante Quartet with Cahal Dallat, Anne-Marie Fyfe, Caradon Strings and Launceston Choral Society in Main Hall: A glorious mixture of music and poetry presented by the Dante Quartet together with Celtic poets and local musicians. Inspired by lively renaissance part-songs, Martinu’s virtuosic Madrigals set the scene. Charles Causley’s poetry takes centre stage in a setting by Andrew Wilson of Singing Game for string quartet and choir, and his ballads are read by celebrated poets Cahal Dallat and Anne-Marie Fyfe, with musical accompaniment. After a Celtic interlude from the young Caradon Strings, Stanford’s brilliant string quartet forms a romping Irish finale.
