Winner of the 2016 Kathleen Ferrier Award, baritone James Newby returns to Sheffield with pianist Simon Lepper to explore the evocative sound world of Ravel. From entirely flippant, to deeply profound, the fragranced Cinq Mélodies Populaires Grecques are paired with music by Ravel’s pupil, Vaughan Williams. Travelling through places foreign and familiar, Robert Louis Stevenson’s poems of a wandering vagabond’s reminiscences inspired the classic English song cycle, and some of Vaughan Williams’ best writing in Songs of Travel. Part of La Belle Époque - A French Weekend Chamber Music and song from France's golden age.
