Irish mezzo-soprano Rachel Kelly continues to delight audiences with ‘sheerly lustrous singing’ (Arts Desk) and her ‘credible, touching’ portrayals (Guardian) in an impressive range of repertoire. She is joined by her compatriot, pianist Fiachra Garvey, 1st prize-winner of the 2012 Jaques Samuel Intercollegiate Piano Competition and former NCH Rising Star, who ‘brings a deep and infectious enthusiasm, combined with insight and technical comfort’ (Sunday Times).
