Mark Padmore tenor; Roger Vignoles piano

Schubert and Britten


  • Mark Padmore tenor
  • Roger Vignoles piano

It is tempting to imagine the spirits of Britten and Schubert tuning in to and approving of Mark Padmore’s artistry. The tenor’s affinity for both composers, not to mention that of Roger Vignoles, has deepened over many years.

This recital places Britten’s only song cycle in German and his equally penetrating settings of John Donne in company with some of Schubert’s greatest Lieder.
