Anna Stephany, Schubert Ensemble

With Anna Stephany (mezzo-soprano) singing French songs, plus the Schubert Ensemble in Cheryl Frances-Hoad's The Whole Earth Dances and Faure's Piano Quartet in C minor, Op 15 No 1.

This week's concerts are from festivals held in the Gower Peninsula and the picturesque mid-Wales market-town of Machynlleth. Today, mezzo-soprano Anna Stéphany explores French song repertoire with pianist Sholto Kynoch and the Schubert Ensemble play a new piece inspired by the landscape from Cheryl Frances-Hoad and Fauré's emotionally charged First Piano Quartet.
