Songs of Life, Loss and Love

Mezzo Soprano Alice Coote joins us for the first time. Equally famed on the great operatic stages as in concert and recital, her performances have been described as ‘breathtaking in their sheer conviction and subtlety of perception’. Hellensmusic Artistic Director, Christian Blackshaw, delighted us last year with his ‘probing musical intelligence and consummate technique (Birmingham Post).

Their programme charts an emotional journey touching on very human themes, including Haydn’s dramatic cantata in which Ariadne laments her desertion by Theseus, and Mahler’s Rückert Lieder for which Alice Coote has won particular acclaim.
