Belshazzar and all that jazz…

16th February 2017, by Mark Lawrence

We are enjoying learning some pretty tough music, not the least in the guise of Belshazzar’s Feast.  If you have never heard Walton’s great work, listen to a recording and then book tickets at to our performance with BSSO and Michael Seal on Saturday 20th May. Tickets are at bargain price.

First unleashed on the musical scene in 1931, this jazzy, dramatic, evocative and electrifying piece pulls no punches in telling the famous story of the Babylonian king and the ‘writing on the wall’.
