Profound Depths

A concert of rarely heard music for baritone and piano.

 

Brian Bannatyne-Scott (Bass)

Tomas Spurny (Piano)

 

Songs for low voice, which are set to either biblical or philosophical texts. Programme includes a setting of the breviary translated by Racine (Hymne, Poulenc), three German translations of poems by Michelangelo (Michelangelo Lieder, Wolf) and the Brahms’ magnificent settings of texts from the Bible (Vier Ernste Gesange).

 

The concert also features Dvorak's wonderful 10 Biblical Songs written when the composer was in New York in 1894 and had just heard of the deaths of Tchaikovsky and Gounod.
