An exploration of the songs and the life of Peter Warlock, real name Philip Heseltine, one of the greatest composers of that incredible flowering of English song that took place in the first half of the twentieth century. This concert combines many of his most beautiful songs with extracts from his letters, read by actor David Mildon, to paint a fascinating portrait of this bon vivant and lover of life and music.

A preview concert to celebrate the launch of VIARDOT200, a festival in Dorset next year celebrating the composer Pauline Viardot.
Lotte Betts-Dean: Mezzo-Soprano
Kieran Rayner: Baritone
Nigel Foster: Piano
A concert exploring the 40-year long relationship between Pauline Viardot, composer and celebrity opera singer whose bicentenary falls in 2021, and the Russian novelist Ivan Turgenev, telling their story through her songs. The programme touches on Viardot’s friendships with Chopin, Liszt, Gounod, Berlioz and Tchaikovsky and shines a light on her extraordinary life at the centre of the international musical world of the 19th century, moving from St Petersburg to Paris, their château at Courtavenel, Baden-Baden and back to France.
Kieran will perform the role of Baron Duphol in Viardot’s Cendrillon, as part of VIARDOT200, a celebration of the composer Pauline Viardot. The weekend festival will also feature an art song concert, which Kieran will sing in. Full cast and other details to follow.
