Gurney and Britten: Peter Harris & Hamish Brown

14 October 2017, 5:30pm - 6:00pm

Peter Harris and Hamish Brown were joint winners of the Oxford Lieder Young Artist Platform, giving a stunning audition recital at the Spring Weekend of Song. Today they give their showcase concert, in a programme featuring Ivor Gurney’s moving 1919 settings of A.E. Housman, Ludlow and Teme, and Britten’s remarkable settings of John Donne. They also include American composer Jake Heggie’s short cycle Friendly Persuasions.

Our other Young Artist Platform showcase recital will be given by Michael Mofidian and Keval Shah on Sunday 22 October.
