Lucy Taylor and Jeremy Thurlow have chosen some of the most atmospheric songs in the repertoire for this lunchtime concert. Schumann’s song cycle Liederkreis encapsulates in miniature a whole world of Romantic imagination and bittersweet emotion, from radiant moonlight and shadowy twilight to rustling woods and mysterious strangers.

These jewel-like settings of Eichendorff’s poetry are complemented by the languorous, sensual and ecstatic songs of Duparc.

 ‘The richest voice around, uniform and deep-hued, subtle and feminine…[a] really impressive artist’  Opera
