Ripon Concerts - Life, Love and Longing - Song recital
Ashley Riches (baritone) & Sholto Kynoch (piano) perform a programme of Schumann Songs:
Kerner Lieder Op.35
Experience extremes of elation and despair as Baritone Ashley Riches and pianist Sholto Kynoch (director of The Oxford Lieder Festival) perform two great song cycles by Schumann.
Dichterliebe ('A Poet's Love') is a celebration of his happiness with his beloved Clara and their togetherness, but it is also a remembrance of the enormously difficult time they'd had when perhaps they both thought this wasn't going to work and they wouldn't be allowed to be together.'
Liederkreis - journeys, circles, and integrated personal relationships illuminate the personal paradox called Life.
Robert Schumann – Letter to Clara (February 1840) - 'Oh my Clara, what bliss it is to write songs. I can't tell you how easy it has become for me…it is music of an entirely different kind which doesn't have to pass through the fingers…I should like to sing myself to death, like a nightingale!'
At Holy Trinity Church, Kirby Road, Ripon, HG4 2ET
Tickets Adults: £17 Students: £5; If under 18: Free. Available from www.riponconcerts.co.uk, Harrogate Theatre Box Office, Little Ripon Book Shop, Ripon Cathedral Gift Shop and on the door
