Songs of Night

  • Jonathan McGovern baritone
  • James Baillieu piano

Success in the 2011 Wigmore Hall/Kohn Foundation International Song Competition helped launch Jonathan McGovern’s career.

He has since achieved distinction in opera and concert performances, and reinforced his status as a rising star of the song recital. His programme with James Baillieu rejoices in the enchanting words and music of songs of night and the half-light.
