Devised and led by Andrea Keller Still Night: Music in Poetry centres around a 60-minute song cycle composed by Keller (2016).
Orchestrated for five improvising jazz musicians, including male & female voice, the songs of Still Night draw their text from a selection of poetry that spans centuries and the globe, connected by omnipresent sentiments concerning death, grief and loss.
