Mon 1 Jan 0001 - Thu 6 Feb 2020,
Baritone Marcus Farnsworth and pianist Huw Watkins give a recital in which they give the world premiere of Richard Causton's song cycle La Terra Impareggiabile (The Incomparable Earth). Written over a span of more than twenty years, La Terra Impareggiabile sets words by the Sicilian poet and Nobel Prizewinner Salvatore Quasimodo (1901-1968). The ten songs trace a trajectory from birth to death through the prism of Quasimodo's extraordinary, exalted imagery of nature and love.
In the first half Marcus and Huw will perform Beethoven's An die ferne Geliebte and a selection of Schubert's Lieder.
More of Richard Causton's works for ensemble will be performed the following evening by Ensemble ISIS.
Duration: 1 hour 45mins with interval
