This is an an ex­plo­ration in words and mu­sic of one the most com­pli­cated ro­mances in lit­er­ary his­tory – Thomas Hardy’s mar­riage to Emma Gif­ford, which went from early rap­ture to ul­ti­mate es­trange­ment, but which in­spired some of the great­est love po­etry in the English lan­guage. Magic in My Eyes charts the course of this tur­bu­lent love story through Hardy’s verse and jour­nals, along with Emma’s let­ters and rec­ol­lec­tions. The Del­maine Quar­tet have se­lected mu­sic that re­flects this com­plex emo­tional landscape, drawn pri­mar­ily from the lyri­cal, multi-lay­ered cham­ber works of the bril­liant, yet rel­a­tively un­known English com­poser, Frank Bridge (1879 – 1941)
