“I am entering the night. Sailing. Nothing left to me now but the stars…”
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, pilot, poet, explorer of the air
In a fascinating and beautiful weave of music and readings from Saint- Exupéry, the evening explores the pre-war world of the pioneer pilot, when to be a pilot was a thing of wonder: from the velvet minimalist chords of Satie to the brightly polished and exquisite whirring world of Ravel; from the exotic flavours of Debussy to the grit and pathos of Montmartre Chanson.
