26. Ashley Riches, Anna Tilbrook: Vaughan Williams: Perspectives 2

19 October 2022, 1:00pm - 2:00pm


This event will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 3 - doors will close ten minutes before the start of the event (12:50pm)

Change of artist: unfortunately William Thomas has withdrawn from this concert. We are delighted that acclaimed baritone Ashley Riches, a former BBC New Generation Artist, is able to step in. The programme remains unchanged. 

The centrepiece of any celebration of the songs of Vaughan Williams has to be his Songs of Travel. These settings of Robert Louis Stevenson have been immensely popular ever since they were first heard in 1904. Ashley Riches also includes ‘The Sky Above the Roof’, a setting of Paul Verlaine, and songs by Fauré, that call to mind Vaughan Williams’ studies in France and the importance of French music to his development as a composer.


Due to the recording of this concert for radio, doors will close ten minutes before the start of the event (12:50pm)

All our seating is unreserved; please arrive in good time to take your seat. For groups of more than 10, please phone or email the box office to book your tickets.

The event duration is approximately 1 hour and there will be no interval.
