The Soldier: From Severn to Somme

‘He's a natural story-teller… outstanding, every single second of it’ The Guardian

Christopher Maltman baritone
Malcolm Martineau piano

Including works by Butterworth, Gurney, Somervell, Mahler, Musorgsky, Schumann, Wolf, Finzi and Poulenc

In the first of two recitals by Malcolm Martineau, the pianist accompanies the celebrated baritone Christopher Maltman – hailed as one of the country’s leading exponents of song ever since winning the Lieder Prize at the 1997 Cardiff Singer of the World competition. Colouring the contrast between the idyll of Edwardian England and the horrors of the Great War, an eclectic programme of songs, lieder and chansons charts the soldier's experience, from boyhood to battlefield and beyond.
