‘I always think of my books as music before I write them.’ (Virginia Woolf).
The Kreutzer Quartet presents music and readings that explore the significance of music for the work of the Bloomsbury Group and Woolf in particular. The concert juxtaposes the music that most influenced her – Bach Fugues, Mozart, Beethoven – with a new work by Jeremy Thurlow, inspired by Woolf’s Orlando.

The pre-concert talk will be given by Dr Lyndall Gordon, Senior Research Fellow in English, whose biography, 'Virginia Woolf: A Writer’s Life', was awarded the James Tait Black prize.

Pre-concert talk: 6.45pm; Concert 7.30pm.
