Hymn and Cocktail Sticks
Available in Stock
A collaboration with the composer George Fenton that was first performed by the Medici Quartet and Bennett himself in 2001, Hymn is a series of memoirs with music that comprises purely instrumental passages for a quartet and speeches. It is presented here as both music and text and text alone. The second piece, Cocktail Sticks, is an oratorio without music that revisits some of the themes and conversations of Bennett's memoir A Life Like Other People's.
