In celebration of the stunning starry ceiling of St Mary’s, join us for a feast of magical nocturnes. Songs by Schumann and Brahms meet Schubert’s Auf dem Strom – for tenor, horn and piano – and Strauss’ very rare Notturno, the violin joining singer and piano as the voice of death. Night-time adventures with Debussy’s cello sonata, Schumann’s much-loved Fantasiestucke, and Strauss’ Nocturno for horn complete this stunning dream-filled programme. As pianist Graham Johnson writes, “It is only the greatest composers who can create the sound of starlight”.
We are teaming up with Pizza Express for a meal between ‘Promised Land: Italian Hour’ and this concert. Reserve a place by emailing us; we’ll ask you to pre-order your food, and this will ensure you have time to eat between concerts! Sure to be a sociable occasion with other festival-goers.
