Daniel Hill starts his recital with Schumann’s Papillons Op 2, and then will be joined by baritone Brian White in Schumann’s wonderful song cycle, Dichterliebe. He’ll conclude his programme with Liszt’s Funérailles.
Finally – a Poulenc bonanza! Ann Martin-Davis is joined by Brian White in Poulenc’s Le Bestiaire for voice and piano, and then she joins forces with Graham Fitch in a performance of Poulenc’s Piano Sonata for Four Hands. And she has other Poulenc treats in store ….
