Alice Coote and Graham Johnson with the Ferrier Centenary Celebration Concert from the Wigmore Hall. Music by Schubert, Schumann, Brahms and Mahler.

In the centenary year of her birth and almost six decades after her tragically early death, Kathleen Ferrier remains an inspiration to countless music-lovers. The Lancastrian contralto's unmistakeable voice and personality were part of life at Wigmore Hall in the 1940s and early 1950s.

For this centenary concert Alice Coote and Graham Johnson pay tribute to the legacy of one of Britain's greatest singers in a programme drawn from the core of Ferrier's repertoire.
