Two stylish constructions of the twentieth century come together for LMP’s Classical Club with a performance of William Walton’s Façade: An Entertainment (premiered in 1923) filmed in the Art Deco gem that is Freemasons’ Hall (opened 1933) and streamed online. Walton lodged with the literary Sitwell family for many years, with Edith Sitwell becoming his patron and collaborator. Walton composed an instrumental accompaniment to match Edith’s poetry as ‘an entertainment’, and the premiere was notorious for Sitwell’s recitation of her own poetry through a megaphone protruding from a screen. Actor Samuel West will bring a more decorous delivery to Freemasons’ Hall with LMP’s chamber group performing Walton’s charming and witty music. 


Enjoy the whole 8-concert series online via LMP’s Classical Club, tickets just £12 each or £50 for the full 8-concert series if you book before 31 October (£60 thereafter).
