Taking inspiration from Bruegel’s grisailles and Botticelli’s evocations of hell and purgatory from Dante’s Divine Comedy, we explore representations of darkness in this Sunday recital of Deborah Pritchard’s solo cello piece From Night, written in response to Henry Vaughan’s poem The Night. From Night was a Park Lane Group commission first performed at the Southbank Centre in January 2015.

Deborah Pritchard and Zosia Jagodzinska (cello)
