WMC Artist in Residence presents a multitude of musical colours

Mendelssohn’s passionate second piano trio is one of the greatest masterpieces in the repertoire and its slow movement, a song without words, reflects this programme’s overarching vocal theme.

Contrasting folksong settings display Beethoven’s earthy wit, Britten’s unbounded invention and the pathos of Vaughan Williams, and set the scene for a selection of exquisite songs by Clara Schumann. This shape-shifting recital concludes with a sprinkling of American romanticism by Amy Beach which leads naturally to a set of evergreen songs by Cole Porter.
