Presented by Perth Legacy ·

‘For the Fallen’ will commemorate and honour the 100th anniversary of the Armistice of World War 1 in a concert of evocative poetry and music on Remembrance Day; Sunday November 11.

The concert will open dramatically with a performance of The Hollow Men (Vincent Persichetti by Brent Grapes (trumpet) and Dominic Perissinotto (pipe organ). Originally written for trumpet and orchestra, the music is an evocative response to the poem of the same name by T S Eliot which will then be read by James Hagan.

This final dramatic composition by Broadstock was commissioned for Dominic in 1994. The work takes its inspiration from the Returned and Services League Burial Ritual and features trumpet and pipe organ with trumpet passages reminiscent of The Last Post.

This concert is proudly supported by Perth Legacy.
