  • Christine Rice mezzo-soprano
  • Julius Drake piano

Two major cycles from the much admired mezzo and her distinguished pianist partner. A compelling stage performer, Christine Rice enjoys a career in major houses and concert halls, with a wealth of roles in her repertoire by Handel, Mozart, Bizet, Britten, Birtwistle, Adès and others. ‘Rice wrings your heart throughout,’ wrote Gramophone of her performance of the title-role in a DVD recording of Fiona Shaw’s production of Britten’s The Rape of Lucretia at Glyndebourne, ‘and her self-lacerating final scenes have a harrowing immediacy.’

  • Hector Berlioz (1803-1869)
      • Les nuits d'été Op. 7
  • Benjamin Britten (1913-1976)
      • Winter Words Op. 52
