The Bevan Sisters

26 October 2010, 7:00pm - 8:40pm

Sisters Sophie and Mary Bevan, both exceptional emerging talents, present a wonderful programme of songs and duets. This is not the first time they have sung alongside one another: this summer they sang Susanna and Barbarina in Garsington Opera’s production of The Marriage of Figaro, as well as performing this programme in Malta. The varied repertoire they cover tonight includes Brahms’ delightful setting of Mörike’s bitter-sweet poem, The Sisters, a number of duets and some delightful folk-song arrangements.
