Neil Georgeson returns to Mareel for the first time in two years, for a piano recital inspired by traditional story-telling, and featuring poet Christine de Luca in addition to co-conveners of Shetland ForWirds Mary Blance and Laureen Johnson, reciting poems new and old. It will be an evening of music and words - of a slightly trowie or uncanny nature - including Ravel's pianistic masterpiece "Gaspard de la nuit", and Horowitz's virtuoso version of Liszt's celebrated concert paraphrase on "Danse Macabre" by Saint-Saens, alongside new translations of the poems that inspired them, by Christine de Luca. Also featuring Prokofiev's colourful and quirky "Tales of an Old Grandmother", Debussy's war-time fireside piece "Nights lit up by the heat of coal" as well as more contemporary works by Cowell and Kagel, and classics by Chopin and Grieg.
