74. On the River

19 October 2021, 17:45 - 18:45

Schubert’s ‘Auf dem Strom’ (‘On the River’) is written for the unusual combination of tenor, horn and piano. It is performed tonight by star tenor Stuart Jackson, his long-standing duo partner Jocelyn Freeman, and the YCAT hornist Ben Goldscheider. Stuart and Jocelyn also include carefully chosen songs by Ivor Gurney and Amy Beach, alongside songs about the seasons by Schubert. The programme is completed with a new addition to the tenor-horn-piano repertoire by composer Julian Phillips, one of the UK’s most celebrated song composers and Head of Composition at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama.
