At 4pm Dr Anna Beer, the distinguished researcher and author of the recent acclaimed book “Sounds and Sweet Airs: the forgotten women of classical music”, leads a discussion on women composers. This will be followed by refreshments.
At 5.30pm, the Pavão Quartet’s concert begins with the highly individual “The Audience” for string quartet and narrator, by British composer Roxanna Panufnik. It comprises settings of Wendy Cope's witty and sharply observed poems about people who attend concerts. The other piece is one of the mainstays of the string quartet repertoire, the Ravel quartet.
