A Cambridge Songbook
In a celebratory recital to open the Cambridge Song Festival, three award-winning young singers join pianist and artistic director Ceri Owen to perform a rich and fascinating collection of songs by Cambridge composers past and present.
Framing the programme are a group of lesser-known songs by Ralph Vaughan Williams, who studied in Cambridge during the 1890s. Between his intimate The House of Life sonnets and the lyrical, tender Four Last Songs, we explore the lively and popular Greek songs of his teacher Maurice Ravel, as well as music by his friends and younger contemporaries, and recent work by leading contemporary composers. Join us as we embark on the Cambridge Song Festival in a spirit of celebration, collaboration, and discovery!
