Sunday week, the 30th April, sees the Royal Northern College of Music’s Day of Song
The event showcases folk connections in song through a series of colourful and vibrant recitals.
Many of the great composers of the past and present have been influenced by folk song, connecting music with place, expressing a people’s identity and cultural heritage.
The concert features a complete performance of Luciano Berio’s rarely heard Folk Songs for mezzo soprano and chamber ensemble, Joseph Canteloube’s Songs of the Auvergne, and folk song arrangements by Ralph Vaughan Williams and Benjamin Britten.
Thomas Schulze, RNCM tutor in Lieder, will give an insightful masterclass on settings by Mahler and Strauss of Des Knaben Wunderhorn.
In the evening there is an exciting concert featuring the RNCM Chamber Choir and RNCM ArkEnsemble in Gypsy Songs by Dvořák and Brahms.
It promises to be a day of enchanting storytelling!
