In this Centenary year of WWI, one of our greatest actors, Timothy West, reads the writings of iconic war poet Wilfrid Owen. West is accompanied by internationally-renowned pianist, Martin Roscoe, and Britain’s leading violinistMatthew Trusler, who will perform the elegiac sonatas of Elgar, Janáček and Debussy written during the Great War. Be moved and inspired by Owen’s moral courage and humanity, and the power and glory of the world’s greatest composers, triumphing over the global conflict that took warfare to a new level of horror.
