‘Art of Fear’ weekend at Southbank’s ‘Rest is Noise’ Festival

This weekend, the Southbank’s ‘Rest is Noise’ Festival is devoted to the ‘Art of Fear’, and OU music lecturer Robert Samuels will be contributing to the events by giving a ‘bite-size’ talk on Sunday at 12.30pm in the foyer of the Queen Elizabeth Hall.

His talk is called ‘The Music of Total War’, and looks at three works: Michael Tippett’s oratorio, A Child of Our Time; Benjamin Britten’s War Requiem; and Dimitri Shostakovich’s Babi Yar Symphony.

More details can be found on the Southbank centre’s website, and on the OU’s OpenLearn pages.
