Delius and Dickens in Ealing

The Ealing Autumn Festival (12 - 27 October) celebrates the music of Delius and the work of Charles Dickens (both having significant anniversaries this year). Julian Lloyd Webber opens the festival with a recital which includes Delius's Cello Sonata (plus music by Rachmaninov, Britten, Bridge and William Lloyd Webber). Other musicians will also be including Delius's music in their programmes, and the West London Sinfonia, conducted by Philip Hesketh, will be playing the Delius Piano Concerto with soloist Viv McLean. Dickens features in a number of films, including the Ealing Studios Nicholas Nickelby actually shown in Ealing Studios. There is a wide mix of events including visual arts, literature, exhibitions (including one exploring Delius's link to Hanwell), plenty of films and the obligatory family friendly events.
