Recitals of English song typically focus on the settings of poems about rural life, often tinged with irony or nostalgia – particularly those written in the shadow of the two World Wars.  These three concerts celebrate the music of some of our best-loved composers and the words that they set.  Recent York graduates George Clark and Joshua Griffiths focus on the relationship between composers and poets in the mid-20th century.  In a typically entertaining lecture-recital David Owen Norris examines settings of the poems of Housman, one of which will be heard in Matthew Long’s evening recital.  Matthew – also a York alumnus – is a member of the vocal ensemble I Fagiolini and has performed in concert and in opera widely in the UK and Europe.

Please note there is a £1.50 administration charge per transaction
