Schumann's Kerner Lieder and David's Bruce's Gumboots at St George's Bristol
Schumann's Kerner Lieder performed by Mark Padmore with Julius Drake and clarinettist Julian Bliss joins the Carducci Quartet in David Bruce's Gumboots at St George's Bristol.
Georgia Mann introduces further highlights from a series of concerts given at St George's Bristol earlier this year. Today renowned tenor Mark Padmore returns with pianist Julius Drake to perform Schumann's Kerner Lieder, written when the composer was enjoying a particularly fruitful year of song-writing and the clarinettist Julian Bliss joins the award-winning Carducci quartet for the contemporary American composer David's Bruce's "Gumboots", a piece that was inspired by South African miners and dance rhythms.
