Mark Padmore, tenor
Ryan Wigglesworth, conductor

When night falls, so too does silence – and that’s when music can weave its darkest spells. In the middle of the 20th century, composers Benjamin Britten and Witold Lutosławski were kindred creative spirits, and each crafted ravishing, dream-haunted tapestries of song for a handful of instruments and the tenor voice of Peter Pears.

One of Britain’s greatest living tenors, Mark Padmore, assumes his mantle today at the dark heart of this typically imaginative programme from Ryan Wigglesworth. Mozart opens the evening in a blaze of sunlight, and Schumann’s most personal symphony brings it to a close: strong emotions, spoken with love.

Classical Conversations: With Mark Padmore
Fri 8 Nov: 18:15
Mark gives an insight into performing the music of Benjamin Britten and the particular challenges of interpreting afresh music which was written specifically for Britten’s partner Peter Pears and his very distinctive voice.
