HE SINGS, SHE SINGS, THEY SING: GENDER BENDING IN LIEDER

HANNAH KENDALL _commission_
RODERICK WILLIAMS _commission_

In this modern age of gender fluidity and identity awareness, how can the notion of
art song, steeped in centuries of patriarchal tradition, keep pace and maintain its relevance?

In _She Sings/He Sings/They Sing_, Carolyn Sampson, Roderick Williams and Joseph Middleton tackle the knotty issue of gender politics in song head-on with a wide-ranging programme from across Europe and spanning centuries in their search for answers, inviting the audience to contribute, join the debate and encourage them on the journey.

The programme may include music by the likes of Purcell, Schumann, Wolf, Brahms, Mahler, Britten, Butterworth, Debussy, Fauré, Duparc and Rachmaninov but the exact content, especially who sings what, will be decided by the audience.
