An evening which interweaves the very human voice of the cello, here played by Natalie Clein, with the rich mezzo-soprano of Fleur Barron, alongside distinguished pianist Julius Drake.
This promises to be an intriguing exploration of these sonorities, from Tavener’s starkly expressive Akhmatova Songs to Schubert’s exhilarating Auf dem Strom and Janáček’s enchanting Pohádka. Alongside Bach’s sacred arias with cello obbligato, is John Cage’s wittily percussive song for voice and closed piano.
