Reminder: Brighton Festival
May 16, 2008
Gavin Friday will be in Brighton, England on Monday 19th, to narrate Ian Wilson’s The Handsomest Drowned Man in the World at the Brighton Festival.
He will be joined by a new ensemble featuring three highly talented young Irish artists and the cellist of the Belcea Quartet. The piece was originally commissioned by the IIB Bank Music in Great Irish Houses Festival with support from the Arts Council of Ireland.
Wilson’s The Handsomest Drowned Man in the World will be performed alongside Olivier Messiaen’s Quartet for the End of Time. Together they form the Messiaen Anniversary Concert to mark the centenary of his birth.
