Programme Note

Our series finale presents internationally acclaimed tenor Mark Padmore CBE and pianist Jocelyn Freeman  in a beautifully curated recital paying homage to two of Lord Byron’s Dulwich classmates: the celebrated pedestrian Captain Robert Barclay and Major-General John Gaspard Le Marchant. Songs in English, French and German guide us through two stalwart themes of song literature and present a variety of perspectives.

Enjoy a day trip to Dulwich, and join our guided walk through Dulwich Wood at 3.30pm featuring historical facts pertinent to the bicentenary of Lord Byron’s death and his schooling at Dr William Glennie’s Academy in Dulwich along the way.
