Carolyn Sampson and Joseph Middleton bring a floral sparkle to the Festival with highlights from their hugely well-received CD ‘Fleurs’. This glorious collection of flower-related songs includes songs by Purcell, Schumann, Quilter and many French composers, as well as Strauss’s stunning Mädchenblumen cycle. Described in The Guardian as possessing ‘freshness of tone, superb control and subtle sensuality’, it is a huge pleasure to welcome Carolyn Sampson and regular duo partner Joseph Middleton back to the Festival.
To begin the concert, our Emerging Artists perform Schubert’s Viola, his wonderful ‘flower ballad’ written in 1823.
Festival Passes are available for a variety of In-person and Livestream ticket combinations.
