Robin Tritschler and Christopher Glynn are firm favourites at Wigmore Hall as well as just up the road at Ryedale where Christopher makes an inspired Festival Director. Known for programming thoughtfully, Robin and Chris offer up a two-half recital that literally irradiates the song platform. Light pours through moonlit scenes by Howells, Lehmann, Brahms and Fauré. Lovers listen to the tread of gentle night via Debussy and the blissful peace of moonlight is welcomed into the singer’s inner sanctum thanks to Schubert. The great English men of theatre, Purcell and Britten, sit shoulder to shoulder and praise the act of singing and of experiencing music to illuminate the human condition. If music be the food of love, play on!
