  • Gerald Finley bass-baritone
  • Julius Drake piano

Matters of life and death course through this programme, powerfully treated by Brahms in his Four Serious Songs and touched upon with lightness by Mozart in his tuneful ‘little German cantata’ of July 1791.

Gerald Finley and Julius Drake tackle Ned Rorem’s War Scenes in their recital’s second half, a haunting cycle of five songs dedicated to ‘those who died in Vietnam, both sides, during the composition: 20–30 June 1969’.
