26. William Thomas, Anna Tilbrook: Vaughan Williams: Perspectives 2
19 October 2022, 13:00 - 14:00
This event will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 3
The centrepiece of any celebration of the songs of Vaughan Williams has to be his Songs of Travel. These settings of Robert Louis Stevenson have been immensely popular ever since they were first heard in 1904. Fast-rising baritone William Thomas also includes ‘The Sky Above the Roof’, a setting of Paul Verlaine, and songs by Fauré, that call to mind Vaughan Williams’ studies in France and the importance of French music to his development as a composer.
