Olivia Ray performs songs by Ravel's Trois Poèmes de Stéphane Mallarmé
Olivia Ray performs Ravel's Trois Poèmes de Stéphane Mallarmé as part of a recital series called Music Under Fire for MusicUpClose.
The recital series explores what was happening in terms of live performance during the War in London and Paris. Central to the narrative will be the life of Jane Bathori, who became the Director of concerts at the Théâtre du Vieux-Colombier in Paris, and in that role became an important and interesting figure in contemporary music.
The recital is being presented by Professor Barbara Kelly, who has recently published a new book on the subject and also contributes to Radio 3 as an expert in French music.
11 November, Conway Hall, London
19 November, Keele University
