Matthew Barley
, who will be joining violinist Viktoria Mullova, percussionist Paul Clarvis, and Brazilian guitarist Jodi Luis Nogueira Pinot, writes: “This is a very beautiful programme. There are pieces that make audience members cry, and others that make them laugh - we couldn't ask for more from an audience. It's very touching music with a lot of humanity.”

Philharmonia conductor Robin O’Neill writes`: "The poems have been compiled into a riveting narrative. The world premier in Bath Abbey in 2014 was an extraordinary success. The final a capella children’s chorus was one of the most breathtakingly beautiful things I have heard. The audience were knocked out by it."

William Graves, the poet’s son, will be present, and opening this year’s Wimbledon International Music Festival. He will also be attending the Bookfest special event, ‘Robert Graves Society Lecture’ Sun 15th Oct.
