  • Leonhard Sickert baritone* *Wigmore Hall Debut
  • Edie Reynolds violin
  • George H. Clutsam piano

Like Walter Ford, who had made his own Wigmore Hall debut earlier that same day, London-born baritone Leonhard Sickert would go on to work with Cecil Sharp in popularising English folk music, and closed this recital with three rarely-heard examples. One of six children born to the Danish-German artist Oswald Sickert, Leonhard (who later went by Leonard) had a successful career as a singer and later as a stage actor; his more well-known siblings include Helena Swanwick, a journalist and early feminist activist, and the impressionist and modernist painter Walter Sickert.
