Robert Page on Edith Sitwell & William Walton's "Facade"

Original airdate 
Sep 19, 2013

Grammy-winning conductor Robert Page and actress Kate Young will join the Renaissance City Winds in a performance of "Facade," a work not performed in Pittsburgh in over two decades. British composer William Walton wrote the music to the poetry of Edith Sitwell, which is recited in precise rhythm against the instrumental music. The Winds will also perform quintets by Jacques Ibert and Gabriel Pierne -- plus a trio, The French Suite, by Robert Washburn.
