Lake District Music – Talk: Tippett Unwrapped

Home > Lake District Events > Lake District Music – Talk: Tippett Unwrapped

Talk presented by Oliver Soden

Tippett was a composer of risk and originality; his imagination often ran ahead of performers, audiences and critics. Comparable to international contemporaries such as Bernstein or Messiaen, his life spanned a vast period of both music and world events. Raised in a world of gaslight and Empire, in his mid-eighties he would write an opera, New Year, that encompassed computers and space travel, its soundscape spiced with reggae and electronics.

Join writer, broadcaster and Tippett biographer Oliver Soden as he unwraps the second string quartet of ‘one of the giants of the century.’
