‘I always think of my books as music before I write them.’ (Virginia Woolf). The Kreutzer Quartet presents music and readings that explore the significance of music for the work of the Bloomsbury Group and Woolf in particular. The concert juxtaposes the music that most influenced her – Bach Fugues, Mozart, Beethoven – with a new work by Jeremy Thurlow inspired by Woolf’s ‘Orlando’.

The concert will be preceded by an introduction to the life and work of Virginia Woolf by award-winning biographer, Senior Research Fellow Dr Lyndall Gordon. (‘Virginia Woolf: A Writer’s Life’ and ‘Outsiders: Five Women Writers who changed the world’, both published by Virago.)

Programme:

Bach/Mozart - Fugue Transcriptions K 405
Mozart - Quartet in F Major, K 590
Jeremy Thurlow - 'Memory is the seamstress'
Beethoven - Quartet in F Major, Op. 135
