Presented by Katie Derham.
In the first of this week's recitals from St Mary's Church at the Hay Festival, featuring late and valedictory works by Debussy, Beethoven, Mendelssohn and others, New Zealand-Samoan bass-baritone Jonathan Lemalu gives a complete performance of perhaps the most famous musical "swan song" of them all: Schubert's posthumous collection of lieder, Schwanengesang.
