Live-streamed from the Holywell Music Room

Philip Ross Bullock looks at the rebirth of lyric poetry and song after the death of Stalin in March 1953. Tracing how writers and musicians responded to the greater cultural freedom that were integral to the Khrushchev 'Thaw', he examines how lyric forms could respond to important contemporary themes in Soviet society. Philip’s talk is illustrated by Helen Charlston, Oliver Johnston and Natalie Burch, three artists who also impressed at the Song Connections events in our ‘Connections Across Time’ Festival.

This event will be streamed completely live from the Holywell Music Room. Shortly afterwards, it will also be available to watch again, using the same ticket and link, until 21 March (11 April for Pioneer Pass holders).
