Nigerian-American soprano Francesca Chiejina is ‘one of the best recent alumnae of Covent Garden’s Jette Parker Young Artists Programme’ (The Telegraph), with a ‘warm, sumptuous tone’ (The Times). She and award-winning Welsh pianist Jocelyn Freeman perform an arresting programme of songs from across the globe. Featuring Barber’s shimmering Knoxville Summer of 1915, lesser known but luxuriously lyrical songs by Nigerian composers Laz Ekwueme and Ayo Bankole, as well as Shirley Thompson OBE’s Psalm to Windrush, this is set to be full of discoveries and delights for all song-lovers.
