A Thomas Hardy Songbook includes songs by Benjamin Britten, John Ireland and more.
Music in the Round’s Singer-in-Residence Roderick Williams is one of the greatest performers of English song. In this concert, Roderick and Christopher will carry you through the wonderful Wessex world of Thomas Hardy’s poems set to music. From cider-drenched outbursts of joy in spring, to the falling yellow leaves of autumn, expect to be completely absorbed by an idyllic landscape with these outstanding musicians.
Roderick and Christopher will also be joined by a special guest Momentum artist, who will be performing a few songs in this concert. The guest’s special appearance is part of the Momentum: Our Future, Now initiative established in response to the pandemic, which sees leading soloists and conductors supporting younger colleagues by inviting them to share the stage at concerts and events taking place over the coming seasons.
