  • Sarah Connolly mezzo-soprano
  • Malcolm Martineau piano

A recent review in The New York Times placed Sarah Connolly ‘at the peak of her career’, a judgement underpinned by the penetrating spiritual insights and emotional power of her artistry.

She and Malcolm Martineau offer a programme touched by nostalgia and longing, from Hanns Eisler’s bitter-sweet Brecht settings to Britten’s evocations of night and sleep, A Charm of Lullabies.
