Shaw and Music with Christopher Newton
July 24 @ 7:30 pm
Christopher Newton, former Shaw Festival Artistic Director, brings back the wit and wisdom of George Bernard Shaw’s critical music reviews. The program features works by composers that Shaw reviewed during his tenure as a music critic for London’s The Star, writing under the pen name Corno di Bassetto (Basset Horn). The Gould String Quartet, along with acclaimed Italian harpist Floraleda Sacchi, perform music for harp and strings, by Saint Saens, Debussy, Dussek, Spohr, Faure and more!
