Debussy among the Poets
Roger Nichols was decorated Chevalier de la Légion d'honneur in 2006 for his 40 years of service to French music. Following his revelatory study event ‘Songs by Ravel’ at Leeds Lieder in 2017, we are thrilled to welcome him back to give a fascinating insight into Debussy’s music in the composer’s centenary year. He will discuss songs to be performed by the Kathleen Ferrier Award winners in today’s Lunchtime Recital.
Previous luminaries of our Composers and Poets programme have included South-Yorkshire born Ian McMillan, as well as composers from Russell Group universities. This showcase promises to be an unpredictable and fascinating concert, which may well point out new directions for art song.Find out more »
