Artlyst Art To Poetry Competition

Artlyst in association with The Poetry Society are pleased to launch a new international award for poetry based on works of art.

From ancient times poets have been inspired by art. Ekphrastic poetry has given us some of the most celebrated poems in the English language from Keats’ ‘Ode on a Grecian Urn’, to W.H. Auden’s ‘Musée des Beaux-Arts’, based on Brueghel’s famous painting of Icarus falling from the sky. In each case, what has been created is not a mere description but a fresh insight, a new world, an autonomous work of art.

Sheku Kanneh-Mason
My new album is finally here!
To record the Elgar Cello Concerto has been a dream of mine since I first heard Jacqueline du Pré's recording, which she made when she was 20. Being 20 myself I can't quite put into words how amazing it was to record this iconic work at Abbey Road Studios with Sir Simon Rattle and the London Symphony Orchestra! All of the tracks on the album are important to me, and it felt so special to record them with my friends, family, teachers and close colleagues.
