Two of the UK’s finest recitalists, tenor Mark Padmore and baritone Roderick Williams, join forces with one of the foremost couples on the stage, actors Rory Kinnear and Pandora Colin, plus peerless pianist Julius Drake, for a programme of words and music inspired by Shakespeare’s Seven Ages of Man.

Other poets include Donne, Yeats and Carol Ann Duffy, while the music ranges from Purcell and Schubert to Copland and Barber, via Brighton’s own Frank Bridge and his pupil Benjamin Britten.

The Steinway concert piano chosen and hired by Brighton Festival for this performance is supplied and maintained by Steinway & Sons, London
