Event Details

Ivor Gurney was a leading English art song composer from the period around World War I. His life was one of amazing artistic achievements alongside great personal torment, which radiates through his music. The torment of life and love carries through into the wonderful Dichterliebe in Robert Schumann’s original twenty-song version. All of this coupled with Shakespeare settings by Roger Quilter and Australian composer Matthew Dewey.

Performers: Michael Lampard (baritone) and Anthony Smith (piano)
