This concert is presented in partnership with Fairlight Hall, near Hastings. To buy tickets, please visit the Fairlight Hall website. The programme will be repeated at Wolfson College in Oxford on Thursday 9 May.

The tenor Joshua Owen Mills was a member of the prestigious Opera Studio at the Bayerische Staatsoper, Munich, and is already in great demand and becoming widely known for his Mozart roles and concert repertoire. He sings a selection of songs by Beethoven, including some of his settings of Goethe, that give the lie to the idea that Beethoven was not a great song composer. We also hear Fauré’s passionate telling of a one-day love affair, the Poème d’un jour. Songs by Poulenc include ‘Fancy’, his single, touching setting of Shakespeare, before the programme concludes with Roger Quilter’s three Shakespeare songs.
