Wigmore Hall Mondays: Kathryn Rudge and James Baillieu

From Wigmore Hall in London, Sara Mohr-Pietsch introduces a performance of English song, featuring mezzo-soprano Kathryn Rudge and pianist James Baillieu.

From Wigmore Hall in London, mezzo soprano Kathryn Rudge and pianist James Baillieu perform a recital of English song.
English song flourished at the beginning of the 20th-century and was influenced by the wealth of poetry and the trauma of global warfare. Today's concert journeys through a programme of songs by Howells and Quilter and a rarity by Denis Browne, and Kathryn and James are joined by viola player Gary Pomeroy for three songs by Frank Bridge.

Presented by Sara Mohr-Pietsch

Roger Quilter: Go, lovely rose; Now sleeps the crimson petal; Music, when soft voices die
William Charles Denis Browne: To Gratiana, dancing and singing
Herbert Howells: Peacock Pie - song-cycle Op.33
Ivor Gurney: Sleep; Most holy night; The Fields are full; By a bierside
Frank Bridge*: Far, far from each other; Where is it that our soul doth go?; Music when soft voices die
