Sir Andrew Davis talks about performing Delius & RPS Supper

19 Nov 2011

Sir Andrew Davis in Conversation with John Bridcut, 28 Portland Place London W1

Monday 30 January 2012 19.00 for 19.30

As he prepares to conduct The Mass of Life for the first time at the Edinburgh Festival later this year, one of the leading exponents of 20th century and early 21st British music of our time, Sir Andrew Davis, talks about his own very personal views on performing the music of Frederick Delius whose 150th anniversary falls this week.

Andrew will be our guest of honour after the Royal Philharmonic Society Annual General Meeting this year.  He’ll be in conversation with documentary director John Bridcut, who is currently working on a film about Delius to be shown on Channel 4. John Bridcut’s latest feature-length films include Britten’s Children (2004), The Passions of Vaughan Williams (2008) and Elgar: The Man behind the Mask (2010).

After the talk we will adjourn for a buffet supper and the chance for more informal questions and to meet other RPS Members.

The venue is 28 Portland Place, a beautiful historic house dating from 1775 and designed by the celebrated Scottish architects the Adam Brothers.
