Sir Willard White & Eugene Asti

29 October 2010, 7:00pm - 8:50pm

Premium tickets £50 – a reserved seat in a prime area of the Holywell Music Room, a signed programme, and an exclusive post-concert reception attended by tonight’s artists.

Sir Willard White needs little introduction as one of the world’s best-loved singers.  He comes to the Festival with renowned pianist Eugene Asti. Together they perform a programme including Schumann’s dramatic Husaren-Lieder and some of his Heine settings, as well as songs by Schubert, and settings of American folksongs by Ives and Copland.
