Programme Note

The annual English Music Festival celebrates the brilliance, innovation, beauty and rich musical heritage of Britain with a strong focus on unearthing overlooked or forgotten masterpieces of the late nineteenth to mid-twentieth century.  

This intimate chamber recital features works of transformative beauty including song cycles by Herbert Howells, John Ireland, Gerald Finzi and Ian Venables, performed by acclaimed Indian tenor, Anando Mukerjee and pianist, Pavel Timofeyevsky. 

Ian Venables’s Venetian Songs are based on words by the Victorian author and critic, John Addington Symonds, and include The Invitation to the Gondola; the author’s wistful evocation of Venice as ‘a city seen in dreams’.

Tenor, Anando Mukerjee
