Schubert – Schwanengesang

18 October 2010, 7:00pm - 8:20pm

7pm: Pre-concert talk (free) given by Richard Stokes

As part of our now annual tradition of programming all three Schubert songs cycles, emerging star Benedict Nelson performs Schwanengesang. Whilst not intended by Schubert as a complete cycle, it contains many of his finest songs including the extraordinary and haunting "Der Doppelgänger".

Benedict Nelson won second prize at last year’s Wigmore Hall International Song Competition and was hailed by Rupert Christiansen in the Daily Telegraph as Best Newcomer in his "Opera Highlights of 2009". He is joined by pianist Gary Matthewman, already established as one of the outstanding accompanists in the UK.

Open Rehearsal: 3pm - 4.30pm:

The rehearsal for this evening's concert will be open to the public, offering an insight into the final preparations that go into a recital. Please note that the end time may be approximate.
