Poetry and Proms

Four musical accompaniments for four musical poems!

Poetry and Proms is a colourful set of pieces that have come about from my collaboration with Stratford's own Richard Fitzpatrick. He selected four poems that we thought deserved a something of a symphonic treatment. The orchestra provides the background setting for each, almost like movie music. A distinct sound, feeling and musical style is conjured up for each poem, alternately amorous, bellicose, dream-like and possibly even goofy.
