Solitude

"A state of being that we need, that perhaps we overlook too easily, that is harder to achieve and to endure and understand than we expect” - James Gilchrist.

The four pieces included in this recital all reflect solitude in varying and contrasting ways: Henry Purcell’s O! Solitude, my sweetest choice (in the arrangement by Benjamin Britten); Schubert’s Einsamkeit; Under Alter’d Skies, in which Jonathan Dove explores the unwanted solitude of grief and loss; and Samuel Barber’s Hermit Songs. 

 

Age Guidance: 12+

Running Time: 1hr 20 mins
