Poet in the City, in collaboration with Aurora Orchestra, present a unique evening of poetry, music and art, in celebration of the life and work of Paul Celan. Widely recognised as one of the most important European poets after 1945, Celan’s work touches powerfully on the personal and collective human experience of trauma and loss. He remains an important inspiration for artists across disciplines. Members of Aurora present music illuminating both the artistic background to and wider impact of Celan's writing, including Psalm, a new work by Martin Suckling. Presenting live music including Webern, Berg and Birtwistle, art, poetry and discussion, we explore a fascinating range of perspectives on one of the world’s great poetic voices, the ‘pure poet of the intoxicating line’.
