Keep the Home Fires Burning - Wind and Words of World War 1


Keep the Home Fires Burning is a recital of clarinet and poetry based on The First World War. It combines tunes of the period with both poems and writings weaving them into one continuous performance. Much of the programme consists of poems written by poets who served in The Great War, including Siegfried Sassoon, Rupert Brooke, John Mcrae, Wifred Owen and Isaac Rosenberg. The music, made famous at the time, features a range of composers including Ivor Novello, Jerome Kern and Irving Berlin.
