Huw Warren: Do Not Go Gentle

  • RWCMD Castle Grounds Cardiff CF10 3ER (map)

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light
— Dylan Thomas

Swansea-born composer Huw Warren presents his jazz suite ‘Do not go Gentle’ based on the poetry of Dylan Thomas. Commissioned by Brecon Jazz Festival for the Dylan Thomas centenary year, the work is the result of Warren’s lifelong interest in Thomas’ poetry and reflects the inherent musicality of the words. This performance forms part of a tour dedicated to the memory of the late Stan Tracey, whose ‘Under Mild Wood’ suite of 1965 was such a great inspiration to Warren and many other jazz composers.

Huw Warren will be supported by the talented jazz musicians of the Royal Welsh College who will perform an AmserJazzTime foyer session before the concert and an AmserJazzTime Late session following the concert
