The image of the lone traveller has long inspired many of the great poets and composers of song, from Ralph Vaughan Williams’ vagabond finding joy in a life on the open road, to the figure of the tragic, love-scorned wanderer seeking escape from the world in Mahler’s Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen. Join us for a day of brilliant recitals and wonderful repertoire. We welcome celebrated British baritone Roderick Williams as special guest, who will give a recital featuring George Butterworth’s A Shropshire Lad, Ravel’s colourful Don Quichotte à Dulcinée and Ralph Vaughan Williams’ enigmatic Songs of Travel.
