20. Poèmes pour Mi

This French duo gave a sensational recital at the 2019 Lieder Festival, under the banner of the prestigious Académie Orsay-Royaumont. We welcome them back for a special programme that centres on Messiaen’s Poèmes pour Mi, an extraordinary cycle of nine songs, paraphrasing texts from the New Testament and dedicated to his wife Claire Delbos.



This event is an in-person and livestreamed event. Livestreamed performances will be available to watch live in our Digital Concert Hall at the advertised performance time and will be available to watch again and on demand until the end of November.

Want to watch this concert in person and at home? 'Hybrid' tickets, valid both in person and for the Digital Concert Hall, are also available for an additional £3 to the in-person price.
