As part of the University of Southampton’s Great War programme (2014-15), a new work will be performed at the Turner Sims on Sunday 16th November at 7.30pm. This is ‘Remembrance Day’ by the composer Michael Finnissy, who is also chair of Composition at Southampton. The piece notably addresses the issue of homo-erotic content in war-poetry and incorporates texts by Henry Lamont Simpson (backgrounded by Goethe and Peter Abelard). It is therefore an intriguing interdisciplinary way for us to think about masculinity and the memory of the Great War.
