News and Reviews
One of the chief delights of the classical song recital is that the comparatively short form of the Lied (song) allows for imaginative, thematic programming, and the present concert is in this regard exemplary.
THIS thought provoking programme of 20 songs from the 19th and 20th centuries traced the mythical soldier’s journey from boyhood awakening in idyllic Edwardian rural England to early death at the 1916 Battle of the Somme.
