A rare festival opportunity to hear one of the great vocal artists of our time in a recital which encapsulates her stunning versatility.

Joined by pianist Joseph Middleton, Sarah Connolly juxtaposes the exquisitely drawn sensibilities of Schumann’s charting of a woman’s life, from awakening love to widowhood, against the sensuous sound world of Berlioz’s Les nuits d’été, permeated by lost love. Poulenc, Copland and Richard Rodney Bennet offer a perfect 20th century balance for this unmissable recital.
