Pre-concert talk at 3.15pm given by Dr Alexander Morrison (free entry)

Joan Rodgers is one of the UK’s best-loved sopranos. Since her debut as Pamina at the Aix-en-Provence Festival, she has worked with some of the most distinguished pianists, conductors and orchestras, performing at opera houses and concert halls around the world.

Together with pianist Christopher Glynn (past winner of the Kathleen Ferrier accompanist's prize and the Gerald Moore award) she presents a wonderful and varied programme, including a selection of Russian repertoire of which her interpretations have received particularly high acclaim. Wolf’s settings of the poet Eduard Mörike are sometimes said to represent the pinnacle of his song writing, with Wolf’s music perfectly conveying the far-ranging imagination of this poet who could one moment be witty and extremely humorous, and the next be reflective and deeply moving.

Please note change of programme (Fauré replaced by Grieg)
