ALEXANDER LEARMONTH (baritone): Innocence and Experience

Reflections on innocence and experience: from parenthood to childhood.

A selection of Lieder, including well-loved and lesser-known songs, by Schubert, Schumann, Brahms, Wolf, and Strauss to take the listener from the cradle, through the pains of first love, and onto parenthood, as well as a performance of Benjamin Britten's Tit for Tat, five songs he composed in his own childhood.


Schubert (Heidenroslein and others)
Schumann (songs from Myrten)
Brahms (Serenade, Mainacht, Von ewiger Liebe)
Richard Strauss (songs from Opus 10)
Hugo Wolf (Storchenbotschaft, Benedeit die sel'ge Mutter, Der Knabe und das Immlein)
Benjamin Britten (folksong arrangements, Tit for Tat, Sweeter than Roses)
