Recital: Robin Blaze and Friends

from 5.00

THURSDAY 7th MARCH - 19.00 - 20.45

Robin Blaze has frequently been described as the finest countertenor of his generation, and is perhaps best known for his recordings of the music of J. S. Bach. As a solo artist he has performed with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, the Royal Opera and the Bach Collegium Japan, and his recording of Thomas Adès’s ‘Love in Winter’ won a Gramophone Award.

Here he presents a recital of music by Benjamin Britten and Johannes Brahms, joined by HCH pianists Aleksandra Timarov-Stanojevic and Liam Crangle, violist Ralitsa Naydenova, and singers Kieran Brunt, Lisa Beckley and Augustus Perkins Ray.

Tickets are just £15 for adults and £5 for students.

J. BRAHMS: Viola Sonata Op. 120, No. 2 in E flat Major

B. BRITTEN: Canticle III Abraham and Isaac Op. 51
