Songs from England and America
An evening of music for baritone, string quartet, harp and oboe.
The ocean that divides Britain and America also unites them. Voices Across the Water is a program of 20th and 21st century works by Britten, Barber and more contemporary English and American composers, set to texts by James Joyce, Mark Strand and Matthew Arnold. The concert will feature baritone Humphrey Thompson and a superb ensemble of Oxford and London-based musicians including harpist Rachel Wick and oboist Elizabeth Fyfe, who will also be performing in Britten’s Phantasy for Oboe Quartet.
The programme also includes Samuel Barber's 'Dover Beach' plus new works by Tom Vignieri and Richard Gwilt.
