Beethoven Plus! 15

Celebrity Guest Concert.

Postponed from 2020 because of the pandemic, this concert is a particularly special one. We are joined by the world-renowned tenor James Gilchrist to present Beethoven’s song cycle ‘An die ferne Geliebte’, Op. 98 and the young Schubert’s rarely-performed response to it: ‘Einsamkeit’. We partner these pioneering works with three of Beethoven’s folksong settings and a brand new work that we have commissioned from Tom Davey. Oboist and cor anglais player with the Hallé Orchestra, Tom is also a fine composer and we are thrilled that he has written a set of three songs with piano trio accompaniment as partner works for the Beethoven folk settings. This is an unmissable concert and a very special occasion for us too!
