A Dame Cicely Saunders 2017 concert

This is a change to the previously published concert by Paul Nilon.

Lucy Stevens (contralto) and Elizabeth Marcus (pianist) will perform “Shakespeare in Song”, A recital exploring love, lust, power and decay.

Lucy takes the audience on a journey through four centuries of Shakespeare’s songs, interwoven with spoken poetry from his plays and sonnets.

Traditional Elizabethan settings performed alongside timeless arrangements by Purcell, Quilter, Finzi, Schubert and Haydn. Contemporary settings by Dring, Korngold, Horovitz and Tippett.

“A remarkable performance, with magical, deeply touching moments – the audience spellbound, the recitations beautifully delivered and subtly interwoven with the songs – some well known, others less familiar and fresh. A memorable evening.” Lauderdale House Feb 2017
