About this event
More English music at Cadogan Hall as Robin Tritschler sings Peter Warlock’s wistful 1922 setting of poetry by W. B. Yeats, The Curlew, with the London Conchord Ensemble.
Written when she was still a student, Imogen Holst’s nostalgic 1928 Phantasy Quartet could almost be mistaken for a work by her teacher, Vaughan Williams. Poulenc’s neo-Classical Sextet for wind and piano dates from the following decade and was premiered in Paris in 1940. Another modern take on a much older style of music comes in Thomas Adès’s richly coloured arrangement of François Couperin’s Les baricades mistérieuses.
