About this event
A sequence of bittersweet works by Benjamin Britten for the third Proms Chamber Music concert. Pianist Imogen Cooper revisits music she first played as a student, Night Piece (Notturno), and accompanies Ruby Hughes and James Gilchrist in Britten’s unnerving story of absolute faith, Abraham and Isaac.
The sublimated eroticism of My beloved is mine, the gentle curves of A Charm of Lullabies, the brittle elegance of Songs from the Chinese (with guitarist Christoph Denoth) and the tart miniature Master Kilby give an intimate portrait of the composer.
