We finish up the day with baritone soloist Roderick Williams exploring songs of travel and journeying in a programme including well-loved lieder by Vaughan Williams, Mahler’s Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen and Schubert. Roderick was awarded an OBE in 2017 for his services to music and his career has taken him around the world performing and recording with the greatest musicians.
The theme for the performance will bring the day’s events together into a programme packed full of songs in English and German relating to the theme of travel.
