Programme Note

Join us for a concert where words and music become paint and canvas.

Pianist and broadcaster Iain Burnside explores composers and writers as portraitists, to include music by Couperin, Schumann, Poulenc and Hahn. Romanian pianist Mihai Ritivoiu (a City Music Foundation artist) and acclaimed baritone William Dazeley will join Iain for an evening to complement and enhance the theme of portraiture.

The Sky Arts Portrait Artist of the Year exhibition remains open prior to the concert as does the Wallace Collection café/bar. The restaurant will remain open for dinner following the concert.
