Read a full statement from Wigmore Hall Director John Gilhooly.


  • Allan Clayton tenor
  • James Baillieu piano

Many of Britten’s vocal works were specifically designed for the vocal characteristics of his partner Peter Pears: here one of today’s leading tenors takes on the Hölderlin Fragments (1958) and the cycle of ‘lyrics, rhymes and riddles’ Who are these Children? by the Scottish poet William Soutar (1969).

  • The Britten Series is made possible with support from the Wigmore Hall Endowment Fund
  • Benjamin Britten (1913-1976)
        • Who are these Children? Op. 84
        • 6 Hölderlin-Fragmente Op. 61
        • Folksongs
