PURCELL _O Solitude_

SCHUBERT Einsamkeit D620
JONATHAN DOVE _Under alter’ d skies (Leeds Lieder Première)_
BARBER _Hermit Songs_

Gilchrist and Tilbrook, particularly noted as outstanding exponents of Schubert and English song, have enjoyed a fruitful collaboration for well over 20 years, with many award-winning recordings to their name. Tonight’s programme is typically wide-ranging and includes Schubert’s ambitious _Einsamkeit_. Jonathan Dove’s _Under alter’ d skies_, which was commissioned by Wigmore Hall, receives its Leeds Lieder première, while Barber’s witty, stark and virtuosic cycle, his settings of translations of medieval Gaelic or Latin poems attributed to Irish saints and holy persons, rounds off the evening.

> _‘Anna Tilbrook is an outstanding accompanist: discreet when necessary, but also able to make the simplest phrase or chordal progression tell without a touch of exaggeration’_
