37. Alessandro Fisher, William Vann, Navarra Quartet: On Wenlock Edge
21 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)
Our series of concerts celebrating Vaughan Williams, in partnership with BBC Radio 3 and BBC New Generation Artists, draws to a glorious close with a performance of On Wenlock Edge and the world premiere of a new work, Portraits of a Mind, by Ian Venables, described by Musical Opinion as ‘Britain’s greatest living composer of art songs’.
Commissioned by the Ralph Vaughan Williams Society to mark the 150th birthday of Vaughan Williams, Portraits of a Mind is a companion piece scored for the same forces – tenor, string quartet and piano – as On Wenlock Edge. Renowned tenor Alessandro Fisher, a former Oxford Lieder Young Artist, performs both works with the Navarra Quartet and pianist William Vann.
Due to the recording of this concert for radio broadcast, 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.
