James Gilchrist and Anna Tilbrook have developed their reading of Schumann’s Dichterliebe over many acclaimed performances and hours of deep thinking. They return to the composer’s Heine settings in a special programme, celebrating twenty years of their artistic collaboration, which also includes Vaughan Williams’s evocative first song cycle.
This concert also marks the end of a project many years in the making, that has seen the duo pairing new commissions with Schumann song cycles. This programme is crowned with the world première of Under Alter’d Skies by Royal Philharmonic Society Award-winner Jonathan Dove.
