Social DistanSong Day Six: Benjamin Appl & Simon Lepper

02 April 2020, 10:00am - 11:55pm

Social DistanSong continues, and on this sixth day of Spring Song we would have welcomed the baritone Benjamin Appl and pianist Simon Lepper. Ben and Simon have remotely recorded a wonderful Wolf song for us, and Ben also did a short interview for us with Katy Hamilton. Simon introduces and performs the last song of Vaughan Williams's Songs of Travel as a piano solo, and both artists have prepared Spotify playlists of their complete programme (compare and contrast!).

Remember that you can find texts and translations of all the songs that were due to be performed today in the 'Explore' section on the main menu above, or by going to the original event listing and clicking on the Programme tab.

Ben and Simon remotely recorded Hugo Wolf's 'Fussreise' for us, introduced by Ben:
