70. Norma Winstone, Tony Kofi, Ankita Saxena, Will Bartlett: Larkin Songs

28 October 2022, 5:00pm - 6:00pm

The acclaimed jazz pianist and composer Will Bartlett has written a jazz-infused song cycle setting the poetry of Philip Larkin in celebration of the poet’s centenary. The cycle has recently been recorded on a new album, The Soundless Dark on the Jellymould Jazz label, by Will and legendary jazz singer Norma Winstone. We are thrilled to host their album launch at the Festival with a performance of this cycle, accompanied by readings and other original songs. They are joined by the award-winning saxophonist Tony Kofi and former Barbican Young Poet, Ankita Saxena.
