Episode 2

With Giovanni Sollima and Monika Leskovar (cellos) performing music by Debussy and Sollima. Plus Benjamin Appl (baritone) and Julius Drake (piano) in songs by Reynaldo Hahn.

Katie Derham continues our week of concerts recorded by the Irish Sea, at the Liverpool Philharmonic Chamber Music Series, and the Mananan International Festival on the Isle of Man. Today Italian composer and cellist Giovanni Sollima is joined by Monika Leskovar for a two cello arrangement of Debussy's Prélude a l'apres-midi d'un faune and Sollima's own impressionistic Interpretation of Dreams in Liverpool. New Generation Artist Benjamin Appl traveled to the Isle of Man for the first time last summer for a recital at the Port Erin Arts Centre which included a sequence of songs by Reynaldo Hahn, including the charming À Chloris, which is based on the bass line of Bach's famous 'Air on the G-string'.
