Erik Satie: Memoirs of a Pear-Shaped Life

Concert image

There is so much more to Erik Satie than his Gymnopédie I, one of the most recognised pieces of classical music. In the 150th anniversary year of his birth, this production – half monologue, half piano recital – showcases the full, startling breadth of the composer’s piano output and interweaves an ageing Satie reflecting on his riotously varied, chaotically creative and intermittently dysfunctional life. Featuring the French pianist Anne Lovett and actor Allan Corduner, this portrait of a complex, eccentric and lonely man has been devised by Meurig Bowen, Director of the Cheltenham Music Festival. Supported by The John Swire 1989 Charitable Trust.

Neil Brand1916 - At War, At Home

Neil Brand piano
Elizabeth Fost actor


Neil Brand, writer, composer, broadcaster (BBC4's Sound of Cinema and Sound of Song) and WW1 historian uses the films, music and writings of the time to take his audience deeply into the experience of the serving soldier and his family at home 100 years ago this year. Battles, factory work, concert parties, cinema-going, the songs, laughter, highs and tragic lows of ordinary people spring to life through film, music and readings as Neil presents his own unique vision of the century-old war and accompanies the films on the piano in his signature style. Supported by The John Swire 1989 Charitable Trust
