Helen Charlston, winner of the 2023 BBC Music Magazine Vocal Award, gave a memorable performance at last year’s Festival, described as ‘sensational’ and awarded five stars by The Observer. For the first part of this recital, she and pianist Sholto Kynoch weave together music from across the centuries, juxtaposing works from the Baroque with Romantic and contemporary songs. Music by Bach, Monteverdi and Sweelinck resonates in unexpected ways with songs by Schubert, Hahn, Anna Semple and others, highlighting the enduring tapestry of human experience that transcends temporal boundaries! The pair then perform Schumann’s Kerner Lieder, an extraordinary cycle of songs that also owes much to music of the past.

  • Néère (1900) from Études latines
