As part of the 2013 Chipping Campden International Festival, the celebrated tenor Mark Padmore is joined by Julius Drake at the piano to explore one of Britten's finest song cycles, set to poems by Thomas Hardy. The concert opens with songs by Beethoven, including his only cycle, An die ferne Geliebte (To the distant beloved), which prefigures the cycles of Schubert and Schumann. Schumann's cycle of Heine poems completes the programme, containing extremes of elation and despair.
