About This Event

Ian McEwan is one of the most admired storytellers of our time – an author whose novels lay bare the passions and the contradictions of modern Britain, exploring universal truths about relationships, society and the infinite complexity of the human condition. In this very special event, the author of Atonement, Chesil Beach and Enduring Love joins the BBC Symphony Orchestra to read from his own works, with music curated around his readings, and a special guest appearance by jazz singer Claire Martin.

Please note that some of the readings in this concert include themes of an adult nature and strong language.

Claire Martin has had to withdraw from this performance and we are grateful to Emma Smith who will perform Thelonius Monk’s Round Midnight in her place.
