Nmon Ford, Eavan Boland, Kit de Waal, London Mozart Players

Panamanian-American baritone Nmon Ford on fusing house music with opera and the legend of Orfeus to create a unique new work which was set to premiere at London’s Young Vic last week. Sinéad Gleeson pays tribute to the great Irish poet Eavan Boland, who died yesterday at the age of seventy five. Boland's poems often drew connections between the lives of Irish women past and present. Author Kit de Waal revisits a novel she has always struggled with - Thackeray's Vanity Fair, and she talks about The Big Book weekend - her new online literary festival (8 -10 May) which is part of the BBC's Culture in Quarantine initiative. Composer Alex Woolf has written a series of pieces for the musicians of the London Mozart Players to play in their own homes. Tonight on Front Row we give the world premiere of Homespun Miniatures No.2, for violin and cello. Main image: Nmon Ford Presenter: Samira Ahmed Producer: Timothy Prosser…read more
