Southern Pro Musica
Conductor: Jonathan Willcocks
An Entertainment by Candlelight
Stravinsky – The Soldier’s Tale
Walton – Façade

Following the great popularity of its ‘sell-out’ Candlelight concerts in St Peter’s in previous years, Southern Pro Musica returns with two colourful and entertaining works for narrators (musician/actors William Godfree and Lisa Walker) and chamber orchestra – conducted by Jonathan Willcocks.

Stravinsky’s The Soldier’s Tale was premièred in 1918 and tells the story of a soldier who trades his violin to the devil in return for unlimited economic gain – with unforeseen result and strong moral conclusion. Walton’s Façade also sprang into life shortly after the 1st World War, brilliantly colourful music from the young Walton surrounding Edith Sitwell’s eccentric poems.
