Song at Wolfson / Anna Cavaliero: Britten, Korngold, Poulenc, Bartók and Walton

30 January 2020, 18:00



A graduate of Cambridge University and the Royal College of Music, Anna Cavaliero also studied with Barbara Bonney at the Mozarteum in Salzburg and has recently returned from a year in the studio of the Opéra National de Lyon. She brings a programme with Britten's On this Island - settings of W.H. Auden - at its heart, alongside music by Bartók, Walton, Poulenc and Korngold. Much of the programme is inspired by folk song or cabaret, and a sense of nostalgia and separation sits alongside an atmosphere of humour and irony.

This concert is presented in association with the City Music Foundation.



After the concerts at Wolfson, book a table at the nearby Cherwell Boathouse and show your ticket to enjoy a complimentary glass of Gusborne Estate sparkling wine with your dinner. Booking essential: see website for details - cherwellboathouse.co.uk.
