Singer Jeanine De Bique’s striking musical discoveries
Singer Jeanine De Bique guides us through a striking selection of music from Poland to Trinidad and Tobago.
Singer Jeanine De Bique recalls her debut at the Proms in 2017 which left her feeling ‘like a rockstar’. She also takes us to her homeland of Trinidad and Tobago with sun-drenched music from massed steel pans and a local choir, and wishes her voice would allow her to sing Wagner.
At 2 o’clock Jeanine reveals her Must Listen piece – an anguished aria from Handel’s opera Alcina - and marvels at how singer Renée Fleming captures the sense of Alcina’s betrayal by the man she loves.
A series in which each week a musician reveals a selection of music - from the inside.
