Concert: Afternoon Song 3 – Earth, Air and Rain

September 2 @ 3:30 pm - 4:15 pm

Free, with a retiring collection

Colin Campbell (baritone) and Julian Kelly (piano) perform Gerald Finzi’s song cycle Earth, Air and Rain and Britten Folk Song arrangements.

Gerald Finzi’s love of the works of Thomas Hardy is well documented: Scholars refer to Finzi’s copy of The Collected Poems of Thomas Hardy in which annotations confirm those poems already set to music and identify many more on his compositional agenda.

The ten songs which form the cycle Earth, Air and Rain (opus 15) express the beauty of nature, ribald satire, longing and regret, and the gentle acceptance of the passing seasons. Here baritone Colin Campbell and pianist Julian Kelly reunite in a programme of English song as autumn approaches.

The season programme can be found here.
