A THOMAS HARDY SONGBOOK
RODERICK WILLIAMS baritone & CHRISTOPHER GLYNN piano
Plus special guest baritone GARETH BRYNMOR-JOHN as part of the Momentum: Our Future, Now initiative
Includes FINZI Before and After Summer alongside songs by Benjamin Britten, John Ireland and more
Our Singer-in-Residence, Roderick Williams, is without a doubt one of the greatest performers of English song. In this concert, Roderick and Christopher will carry us through the wonderful Wessex world of Thomas Hardy’s poems set to music. From cider-drenched outbursts of joy in spring, to the falling yellow leaves of autumn, expect to be completely absorbed by an idyllic landscape with these outstanding musicians.
Roderick and Christopher will also be joined by guest baritone Gareth Brynmor-John, who will be performing a few songs in this concert. His special appearance is part of the 'Momentum: Our Future, Now' initiative established in response to the pandemic, which sees leading soloists and conductors supporting younger colleagues by inviting them to share the stage at concerts and events taking place over the coming seasons.
Please note that due to the limited capacity of these socially distanced concerts, ticket sales are restricted to a maximum of 2 tickets per event, per transaction.
