Profound Sound 2020: Kirkman Quartet: In Darkness Let Me Dwell

Tickets for this event are available On The Door

Launching the festival is composer John Woolrich, who has recently moved to Folkestone. "Like all the most interesting composers, John Woolrich's work is a kaleidoscopic mixture: of spiky wit, lightness, dark menace, on canvasses that are hugely ambitious or delicately miniature. Like one of his anecdotes, I would never predict how a Woolrich piece will unfold; he's the master of surprise and variation.” (Joanna MacGregor)

In Darkness Let Me Dwell is performed by the Kirkman Quartet and takes its inspiration from the Italian painter Carlo Levi.

‘If a straight line is the shortest distance between two fated and inevitable points, digressions will lengthen it; and if these digressions become so complex, so tangled and tortuous, so rapid as to hide their own tracks, who knows -- perhaps death may not find us, perhaps time will lose its way, and perhaps we ourselves can remain concealed in our shifting hiding places.’

John is a local music curator and launched his first season of Folkestone Early Music last year at Customs House Folkestone.
